a foundation student, and this is only my experience after
the first semester. But over all I enjoyed how
there was one foundation studio teacher assigned to a class.
Each foundation teacher is a skilled and working artist.
The information that they give you covers broad sections
of art that you will continue to use throughout your
career. The first five weeks I had to draw
boxes, so I suggest that if you don't have patience
or perseverance for seemingly tedious and pointless projects through the
first year, don't come. Boredom is a sign of
a lack of imagination, and it's only your artistic sensibility
and life that's at stake if you are lazy.
The first year is about learning and working hard, not
jumping right into the subject you want to play with.
As for the work that you do and what
you learn, it is up to your individual desire to
learn to absorb what is offered.
Western Art 1
and Writing Workshop are the other classes usually taken for
the first semester. They are decent if you have a
good teacher. Mine were Michelle Fricke and Steve Walker.
They were both wonderful teachers that cared about how
they taught their classes. I have heard horror stories
about other writing teachers and history teachers, but then
there are good stories about more teachers in the liberal
arts department...I suppose it's a matter of opinion.
The campus is quite nice and close and comfortable.
Sometimes I get claustrophobic in the dorms because I
hardly get out of campus due to my lack of
a car and a constant work load (if you live
in the dorms you don't really need a car.)
But when I do feel this way, I like to
go on walks on the Nelson Lawn (the sculpture garden
of our museum right across the street, go down to
the city water way where hundreds of Canadian geese
flock, or take the city bus straight down town and
look around at tall buildings, People have good parties
for the most part too...always walk at night with a
group...and I'm rambleing.
I think my choice in this school
will prove to be a good one.
