Interactive & Motion Arts
I already felt like a Moore college student even before coming to Moore as part of the class of 2017. I had already taken several classes at the College through the Pre-College Program for High School Young Adults. I attended Moore’s Summer Art & Design Institute (SADI), a four-week pre-college residential program for women. I also completed a five-day intensive program in painting essentials.
I didn’t look at other colleges because I wanted to continue my journey at Moore. Taking the youth program courses allowed me to see that the faculty, staff and fellow students are welcoming and friendly. I also enjoy that the college is small, enabling for more time to be devoted to guiding students towards success and confidence in their artistic endeavors..
I am excited to be a first-year student in
the BFA program in Interactive & Motion Arts. I already know the teachers
by name and navigate the building with ease. When I heard about the new major, I
immediately wanted to do it because it relates to me. It consists of animation
and video games, things that I deal with on a daily basis. I first began
experimenting with digital art and animations in 2005. During middle school and
high school I began creating art with more meaning and improving my ability
with different art mediums. I like that through art I can make someone smile and
showcase my ideas in a creative way, I also like that I encounter and befriend
artists that differ in style and ideas from mine.
It is great that Moore is helping to get
more women into the field of gaming, I find it exciting that there will be even
more individuals with unique and creative ideas entering the gaming field.
