Class of 2010, Lexington, KY

I’ve always known that I wanted to do something art related with my life but had no idea what that would look like for my future.  Fate brought me to Georgetown College and I will be eternally grateful for the education and experience I gained from GC.  The art department at GC is small in the best kind of way and operates like a family.  All of my studio professors became (and still are) mentors to me.  The art faculty there believed in me, encouraged me, and pushed to me to see my own potential.  Being an art student at GC was so much fun.  Everyday was different and always exciting. Whether it was playing Objectives with Daniel (tell him its time to come out of retirement), studying abroad with Dr. Decker, nerding out about fonts with Darrell, or trying to determine who came first: the chicken or the egg with Boris; everyday in the art building brought something new.

I am currently an MFA student at the University of Kentucky.  I’m still not sure what art related life I will lead just yet.  Luckily I have some more time to figure it out and GC is only a 20 minute drive away.  Thankfully, my masters degree is funded at UK and paired with a teaching assistantship.  I also spent five weeks making art in New York City at an artist residency at the School of Visual Arts this summer.  All of my creative achievements can be credited back to the education I received from Georgetown College’s art department.  They are my art family and life mentors and things are looking good for my future right now.
