Of course, there is tons of things happening the last few months and even more ahead of me. What are all of these things? Well let’s see:
1) This September I am the Alumni Artist at Adrian College (my Alma Mater) for Homecoming! My show will be September 20 – October 11. I will be around Adrian the Monday before to hang the show, but I will also be doing a lot of other exciting things. I was asked to do a Noon Talk (pretty typical for artist who exhibit at Adrian College), a talk about applying and real life in Graduate School, a critique with advance photographers, and tons of dinners/lunches with them. I’m very excited for this opportunity!
2) I applied for graduation for this December (fingers crossed!) where I will get my Masters of Arts. Between then and now I have to take a million photographs, do tons of research, write my thesis, hang my show, do more research, write more of my thesis, take more photographs, take more photographs, take a few more, and then even more photographs. And then write some more. Contingent on that I move on to the Masters of Fine Art’s program where I will graduate in May 2015!
3) This Fall I take pedagogy, which means that this Spring I will start teaching. I’m slightly terrified, but I’m also slightly highly excited. I ordered my first teaching books a few days ago and I can’t wait to dig into them! I asked my mentors for suggestions on teaching books, but please feel free to suggest others. I know it takes years and continuing your self education, but I want to seek out the best information I can find.
4) I was offered a “nonofficial” position to teach at Adrian College for my mentor’s sabbatical once I graduate in 2015. A lot of the details are in the works yet, but it will be a year of wonderful learning and experiences. I’m excited and very lucky to have had this opportunity presented to me.
And that’s it for now! Until next time.
