Welcome back readers!
It is the last few days of January and I just completed my first week of the semester. Where did the time go?! Well to start off where we left off last post, I was preparing for two weeks in London. Those two weeks have passed and its time to fill everyone in on this big trip. Where to begin!
London was one of the most amazing experience I have had so far. I finally went on my first plane ride and I could not have picked a better place to start my traveling experiences. London was very similar to New York City since there were many tourists. I didn’t feel very out of place. Although it helped that I was with a group of about seventeen other students. We had a very planned itinerary, which kept us all super busy. I went to about five museums, countless galleries, saw other artists’ studios, and several tourist attractions. Some of my favorites were The Tower of London where the Crown Jewels are displayed, Big Ben, Victoria & Albert Museum, Westminster Abby, and High Tea at the National Gallery. I also had free time where I spent afternoons shopping at Camden Lock Market, and visiting with one of my friends from home. Overall the trip was a success. I am also receiving three studio credits after I complete a studio project. I believe that I grew a lot as an artist in just those two weeks and found so much inspiration to use in these next few months.
The first week back to school is always a little nerve racking and a bit unorganized, but I managed to gather all my supplies, meet new people, and even catch up with a few of my friends. I am going to enjoy this semester’s studio classes. I am taking Process and Experiments 1 and Process and Experiments 2, which are metal studio classes focusing on surface treatments and casting. I am also excited for Crafting in Virtual Space where I will be learning about three-dimensional printing in our digital lab.
Another new experience I am excited for this semester is that I was selected to be a Student Ambassador! I will be giving tours to perspective students, and maybe even meeting some of my readers.
Stay tune for spring 2012!
Until Next Time!
