Blogger Role: Illustration
Major: Illustration, 2nd major in Biology
I chose Marywood because I was interested in the illustration program they have here and the internships that Marywood offers. I also liked that the campus was small and quiet, and it meant I did not have to go somewhere busy and crowded like New York City. I thought it was nice that I was far enough away from home for me to be independent as well.
I am majoring in Art because I love art, and I could not see myself doing anything with my life except art. I’ve been drawing since a young age and I wanted to expand on my knowledge of how to make my art better more creative. My dream one day is to work for a company like Pixar or DreamWorks. On the other hand I love science just as much as art which is also why I am a double major in biology to maybe do medical illustration one day.
When I’m not in class, I’m usually at the gym, talking with friends, playing video games, stuffing my face with food, or losing my mind with all the work I have piled up.
My favorite art class so far was 3D design because it was awesome working with different materials and concepts. This class was unique as it teaches you how to work in the round and makes you think outside the box in terms of your designs.
The coolest thing I’ve done at Marywood so far was probably being able to take a bus trip to New York City for art history. We went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art which was amazing. I loved looking at all of the statues and paintings. I barely saw much of what the museum had because it has a huge collection of artwork!
When I graduate, I honestly have no idea what I what will happen because I am still trying to figure out what exactly I want to do. I know that I will be moving somewhere nice and warm though!
I’d recommend the Art program at Marywood because overall it is a great experience taking the art classes here. So far I have learned a lot with respect to my own creativity and how to become a better artist. Most of the professors I’ve run into are great people and care about your artwork and genuinely want to help you improve and learn.
