The End of the I.S.

Hello all.  I have been away from my ‘blogging chair’ for so long that I hope you have not forgotten about me.  However, there was a very legitimate reason for my absence. Barb in Admission gave me the rest of last week off work so I could prepare for the tail end of my Independent Study.  My talk…

Expectations and Exhibitions

My art I.S. show is installed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  And no, that is not an excessive amount of exclamation points.  This is the culmination of four years of art classes, so my enthusiasm is justified. I do still need to tweak a few things, but in general, things are fairly set. Initially, I had hung my canvas scroll pieces by…

During May term this year, I am going to Berlin, Germany for three weeks!  The class is called “Drawing Abroad,” and we are going to work in our sketchbooks the whole time, creating visual documentation of our experience in the city. Why Berlin, you might ask, when we have all of Europe to choose from? …

Ups and Downs

I want to take today’s blog space to talk about how wonderful the art faculty are.  Deb Whistler and Leticia Bajuyo are the studio art professors, and they have helped me tremendously to work through the breaking points of my I.S.  I hit another breaking point last night, and they both were there to talk me…

Also, International Club’s annual…

I Bet You Didn't Know That…

There’s not much new to report from yesterday to today, besides making art (which I realize begins to sound repetitive), so I’m going to jazz this blog up with some random facts about Hanover.  Maybe you’ve heard them, maybe you haven’t.  Chances are if you’ve taken a Hanover campus tour before, you may already know…

Paintings and Weddings

Well, things are still chugging along here.  I have a Baroque Art History exam tomorrow, and my art I.S. show opens this upcoming Wednesday.  I still have a fair amount of work to do before the installation, so I have loooots to keep me busy! Also, my friend Sara’s wedding is this Saturday, so I’m driving…

Action-Packed Weekend

So, after a couple of cathartic days, Carson is BACK!  My I.S. is not in shambles like I’d mistakenly thought, and I’ve realized that if I don’t get picked for JET it will not be the end of the world. I had a fantastic weekend!  I knew I wouldn’t be around to get a lot…
