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!!!!!
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.
