Anna Heeres hails from the "very small town" of Stryker, Ohio, and chose to pursue her studies at the Cleveland Institute of Art in part due to the college's relatively small footprint—and the sense of community that can arise when working closely with other artists.
"The size of the school seemed familiar and comforting to me," she says. "I've really been enjoying the general welcoming and accepting atmosphere of CIA. It really helps me feel like I'm where I'm supposed to be."
A first-year student planning to major in Illustration, Anna is eager to explore the opportunities for creative expression that the field offers. "I am passionate about going into illustration," she says, "because it is a way to communicate feelings in a way that words can't manage."
