Hear from Art Students

Truman art majors talk about their experience at Truman…

Anna Grace

“The magic of being an art major begins with studio classes. A studio class takes place in — you guessed it — a studio, and is a couple hours of making art with classmates. I have had many fond memories of chatting in class with my friends or people who became my friends afterward while making prints, embroidering fibers projects or choosing and re-choosing colors for a poster. The collaborative nature of these classes teaches students about giving and receiving feedback from their peers.”

“I always wanted to study abroad. I think it helps you get a good idea of differences between your own culture and other ones and it also helps you grow as a person. You learn more about yourself.”

Students Contribute to Fundraiser for Food Bank

Ceramics majors and other art students made bowls for a fundraiser for the Pantry for Adair County, an organization that provides help for those in our community who experience food insecurity. The "Empty Bowl Soup Lunch" sold tickets for a meal consisting of soup, pie, and beverage. People attending could choose to take a bowl that was made by an artist, for $30, including the luncheon, or one that was simply "unique," which only cost $20, including food. It was a big success and the students' bowls sold out well before the end of the event. Thank you to everyone who made this a success! -Read more Students Contribute to Fundraiser for Food Bank
