Student Name: Alyssa Smith
Year You’ll Be Graduating: 2022
Major: Art Therapy
I am majoring in Art because: Art is something I am very passionate about; all my life I knew that I was going to have a career in something art related.
The kinds of things that inspire me are: Sunsets, nature walks and sunny days and the beach are some of the few things that inspire my work. Needless to say, I cannot wait for the summer time.
My favorite class so far was: Two dimensional design. I loved coming up with and creating different types of designs and textures for each project.
When I’m not in class:I tend to go on walks while listening to music to try and find some inspiration.
The coolest thing I’ve done so far was: Working in the wood shop, using the bandsaw and sander was certainly a fun learning experience.
When I graduate: I plan to further my education and go to graduate school, and receive my masters degree in art therapy.
I’d recommend the Art program at Marywood because: The studio professors are amazing. Every professor that I have had thus far made sure to go out of their way the help me with any issues that I had with my work.
My favorite medium: is water colors. I absolutely love how fluid water colors are and how if you make any number of mistakes you can easily take them out with water.
