As ready as I am for the upcoming semester to begin, I’m going to be very sad to leave behind FAA 110. Anyone of my peers has heard me talk about this class at least eight times because I enjoyed it so much. Having a class that was more focused on making me think about the different parts that go into performance and had very little work to go with it was very good for my mental health and the first semester of my college career.
Krannert Art Museum’s second ArtTalk discussed the way we get rid of nuclear waste. The curator, Lilah Leopold, focused on a few different pieces and explained the intention of the exhibit from the artists’ point of view.
I went to the Krannert Art Museum’s first-ever Art Talk and learned a lot about African Art and it’s movement throughout the Western world. The curator talked about several pieces from different regions as well as their significance to the cultures they originally came from.
On Thursday October 3rd at the Krannert Art Museum we went to a dance Workshop taught by Jennifer Monson. This experience was unlike any other and it felt very freeing and liberating. I had never gone to a dance workshop and going to this one was unlike anything I thought it would be.
My transition into my new major of Atmospheric Sciences I knew would not be an easy one. With my schedule being increasingly difficult, I knew that I had wanted to add a class that would have nothing to do with my major and that could act as a breath of fresh air. That is when I discovered FAA 110! Some of my friends had recommended it to me so I wanted to give it a shot. I could not have been happier with my decision! I got the chance to attend different events, involving the Arts, that I would never have been able to experience outside of taking this class. Throughout the length of this course I learned so many things and got to see a whole new world away from my science one. Here are the events that I attended that taught me so much, as well as pictures and links to my blogs to go along with them.
My experience with being in this class is one that can never be duplicated. With many lessons learned involving: how many different forms of Art there is, how a class doesn’t need to be just lectures and tests, and how important it is to be courageous and attend events I have never been to before. I plan on keeping up with this experience by continuously putting myself out there and going to events that I wouldn’t typically go to. That even though my life is heavily based around math and science, I will still make time for myself and not let life pass me by without experiencing as many different performances as possible.
