Terry Craig learned about abstract art when he was in first grade, and it wasn't long before he decided to create some of his own. "We were painting, (and) I just started making abstract shapes and filling up the piece of paper," he says. "The teacher came over and said, 'What is that?' and I said, 'Abstract art.'" Terry's teacher was so pleased that she framed the piece and hung it in the cafeteria. 


After high school, Terry worked in a stained glass studio, where he discovered his talent for drawing. The head artist encouraged him to develop his skills, so he enrolled at the Ringling College of Art and Design.
