Here at BHS the faculty host "College Spirit Day". The faculty wear or post signs of the schools that they attended in order to inform and educate students about the schools they graduated from and answer questions for students and maybe inspire a student to apply to a school that they did not have previous knowledge of....
So here is my list of schools:
For undergraduate school I attended Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, Texas
Although TCU is known for sports, it also has a terrific business school, strong in the sciences and a small but great art school.
The city of Fort Worth has a the world class art museums, The Kimball Museum of Art and the Fort Worth Modern Art Museum and numerous galleries.
For graduate school I attended Rhode Island School of Design
Rhode Island School of Design, otherwise known as RISD is a magical place. If you want to eat, drink and sleep (well, you don't really sleep in art school) then RISD is the place for you. I strongly encourage you to visit, Providence is a short drive or train ride and worth the visit.
Hope you had a great summer and are ready to enjoy an art filled school year. The theme for the art department this year is CREATIVITY. Seems obvious for an art class, but a great theme to make sure that all of the lessons that I am teaching this year are allowing the freedom to be creative and express yourself.
