Musuem School Art Program
Although it was both difficult and frustrating, I found the six-week course I took at the Boston Museum School last summer (Museum of Fine Arts) extremely rewarding. Sixty students took the course, but we were divided into three groups of twenty. Every weekday morning from nine to twelve we were taught by three college-level instructors in drawing, print making, and sculpture. The materials were sometimes in short supply, so we had to improvise, and some days we were assigned to a project with a partner with whom we did not necessarily get along. These irritations helped me understand the real working world.
Another new experience for me was the skill level of most of the students , they were all fantastic! While at my high school I was used to being considered one of the best artists, at the museum I just blended in with the others.
