“I remember taking a studio elective with Professor Moss on Wednesday mornings that was kind of a struggle at the time because it was very free and open and required direction and discipline on the student’s part. Looking back it was really indicative of what you have to deal with as an artist once the school directed assignments end. I didn’t realize it at the time, but I think it really helped with the self-motivation that is required to continue your own studio practice. There was also a Modern and Contemporary Art class, not lecture, but more theory that was very dense and required a lot of reading and writing. It was great because it opened my eyes to what art is, or can be, beyond basic art history knowledge. It allowed for a lot of open discussion and contemporary thinking which was really nice. Without it I would have been very behind with art theory and general ideas about the ebb and flow of art itself in a contemporary context.”
