Fine Arts: 2D

My older sister went here. I saw how it helped her grow as an artist and a professional. I wanted that for myself.

Moore has helped me realize how important it is to discover who you are as an artist and put that into your work. Working through difficult times, pushing yourself to take risks and do unfamiliar things, even to make mistakes, these are some of the most important lessons I've learned from my education here.

Philadelphia is a great city for young artists and Moore is so conveniently located to its many museums and galleries. I often like to visit the Philadelphia Museum of Art. It's just a short walk away and as a Moore student we receive free membership. I'll take my sketch pad and just sit and be inspired. Part of being a student at Moore is getting out there and soaking up all Philadelphia has to offer.
