Her day starts and ends with painting, and her favorite “motives” are birds. Mariam Sargsyan, a 17-year-old COAF beneficiary from Arevatsag village, has decided to become an artist.
Until recently, she managed to attend a Wikipedia club and Robotics in parallel to drawing, participating in COAF’s Aflatoun and English Access programs. As soon as the SMART Center opened its doors, she became one of the first students to attend.
“The main reasons I started attending the SMART Center were COAF’s Drawing and Digital Drawing programs. So far, I have managed to attend five programs: Digital Drawing, Chinese classes, Programming, AgriTech, Vocals, and Finance,” says Mariam, noting with regret that she hasn’t yet been able to participate in the Drawing program.
She dreams of having a small house in the forest, where there will be a studio and many pets.
