Why, thank you! My desire to teach is probably 60% of the reason I had decided to go to graduate school in the first place seeing as the majority of schools out there require an MFA degree and it’s an amazing chance to garner two years of teaching experience at the same time.
That and I’ve always crushed on the work coming out of MICA, even in my undergrad at BYU. I can’t tell you how excited I am to be here and have the opportunity to take advantage of the classes available! I’m so impressed by the curriculum, quality of training and critique that’s at this school. The students and faculty are amazing. My secret life goal (not-so secret now that the whole internet knows it) is to totally teach here someday and be a part of that culture. <3 It’s just flamboyantly nerdy enough for me to fit in.
But first, I need to get better myself. Nobody wants a teacher who can’t do what they’re teaching, so that’s the number one goal at present. Thanks again for the encouragement to pursue that dream!
My work is at the MICA Illustration Practice MFA table!!!
