For Hasaan Kirkland, associate professor of fine art at Johnson C. Smith University, art has always been second nature. He started taking interest in his craft at a young age, drawing cartoons and race cars with his older brother on paper, but now his new canvas is a wall outside of the Arts Factory on West Trade Street near campus.
