Name: Adrianna Cragle
Year you’ll be graduating: 2023
Major: Fine Arts/Illustration
I am majoring in art because I have always enjoyed art over the years. It has helped me a lot with my mental health, and I use it to express my emotions.
The kinds of things that inspire me are nature, my pets, and even cartoons I enjoyed as a kid. I really like painting and drawing flowers the most I would say.
My favorite class so far was introduction for drawing, just because I have never been that good with charcoal, and I learned about it the more I used it.
When I’m not in class I like to take photos, sketch, and paint scenes from my favorite shows and movies.
The coolest thing I’ve done so far was work on painting sets and backdrops for local community and high school theater productions.
When I graduate my dream job right now would be to work on movie sets (scenery, special effects, and make-up) or to work as a cartoonist.
I’d recommend the Art program at Marywood because the classes are small and the professors are very hands on!
