“I hope to move to Chicago to pursue my art career, and, hopefully, get accepted into a Masters of Fine Arts program.”
How have Carthage faculty had an impact on your life or Carthage career?
“Professor Ryan Peter Miller has encouraged me countless times to experiment and to push the limits of my creativity. He has always been there for me whenever I felt lost in the big art world. Professor Kim Greene showed unbound patience with me while developing a new craft and always challenged me in my work to turn my good ideas into great ideas! Professor Diane Levesque has been endlessly knowledgeable in her art history, past and contemporary, and has taught me about art concepts that I had only begun to grasp.”
“My favorite class has to be Sophomore Seminar. It‘s something of a cross between a contemporary studies course and an art theory course. It has helped me gain a better understanding of the art world.”
Opportunities at Carthage
“I belong to the Carthage chapter of the Kappa Pi Honorary Art Fraternity. I also happen to be the president. I joined last year and felt such a sense of community within the group. I have made so many great friends during my short time, and when it was left up to the undergrads to take control, I stepped up and became president.”
