Last Day- Finals Turned In
The end of the semester is finally here. I can not express enough how valuable this experience has been for me. Watching the students grow from day one drawing the figure has been rewarding to me and to them.
I got to know the students and gain trust from them. They listened and took direction with ease. I am proud of them all.
The only thing the students had to do today was hang their work for there final assessment. Maryann brought them donuts, coffee and clementines for a snack and gift. The students had to fill out evaluation and then could leave when ever they wanted.
I think they all enjoyed the class. I believe we only lost one student and neither Maryann nor I know why. But I think this student was overloaded and could not handle the stress.
All and all this was a great class and I can see many of them continuing on to become BFA majors and even some in drawing as their concentration.
Yippie it is all done for the semester!!!!!
Free Drawing Day with live model
Today Maryann and I gave no instruction. We left the student alone the who time to draw freely without our input. I feel this was welcome by the students and very beneficial to them.
It is hard to believe that the semester has wound down. It is a bit anti-climactic as Maryann mentioned it would be. I do feel though that the class really enjoyed it and where present and hardworking.
It was a fun day today with the freedom that was allowed in the room.
I have just begun my journey in the Masters of Fine Art Program at The University of Montana. I am currently "Shadowing" an art professor in her class to observe and learn what being a professor all about. As part of this process I have created this blog to document what I am learning.
