📣 CALLING SKILLED ART NERDS

I couldn't have imagined a better co-op experience than working at Winged Canvas! I have learned so many new things and have been given amazing opportunities to take on real-world assignments. . .My time here definitely opened my eyes to not only how a small business functions, but also to how teamwork plays an important role in the success of any project. I truly admire how welcoming and close-knit the Winged Canvas community is!
