CARTHAGE, N.Y. (WWNY) -
Makayla Lea hopes to pursue a degree in art education, "because I love kids and I love art."
The Carthage High School visual artist is the 7 News Arts All-Star for November 22, 2018.
"Art is a way to express myself as a person," she said. "Some people, they like to do their hair crazy colors or wear crazy clothes, but I like to make my art."
She says she sees herself owning a gallery someday.
