Something about Moore just stood out among the others, something about it just ‘clicked’ with me, the idea of attending Moore seemed so natural. I feel part of a close knit community and it feels just as much as a family as it does a school. I love the idea of smaller classes, allowing professors to get to know you on a more personal level. With that I feel as if they can better understand you as a student and as a developing artist. This environment has helped me grow more in my first year of college than I could ever have hoped for. I feel safe here, and I know that everyone is looking after one another and working together to grow together as artists.
There are so many aspects to look at when deciding on your education, but Moore seemed like an obvious choice to me. Moore is located heart of Philadelphia, yet almost tucked away from the overwhelming feeling of being in a ‘big city’ by being so close to the museum district. Anyone can tell that Moore is passionate about its role as an all women’s’ art college. They focus on everyone in hopes that they all will achieve their dream, and I feel confident that they will help me achieve mine.
It is hard to choose favorite classes, but my Digital Painting course at the moment really stands out. Before this year, I had never used a tablet before, and I had dreaded the idea of any digital course. But I absolutely love all of it. It is challenging yet amazing what can be created digitally. It has completely opened my eyes to the possibilities of art.
I am proud to be considered part of ELA (Emerging Leaders in the Arts), it has changed me already and I know it will continue to do so. I do hope to become part of other activities and organizations during my sophomore year, but that will have to wait for now.
As for the fact that I am attending a school in Philadelphia, who wouldn’t want to spend their time in one of the oldest and most historic cities around? There is art on every corner of every street. There are new cultures to see and taste. And there is just so much to do and experience here that one can never get bored.
