In the annual gallery show Why I Write. Why I Create, art students offer intimate portrayals on learning to deliver truths through art.
In this blog, we present a behind-the-scenes look at the gallery show through interviews with student participants.
Each blog post shows how refreshing students find the sense of openness—vulnerability—in their responses to Why I Write. Why I Create.
One student participant, fashion designer Andrea–Lijoy Shields, expresses the feelings many participants share: “I feel this great appreciation
that I am allowed to enter someone’s inner thoughts. As I read, I can feel the person evolve. And as they evolve, I begin to evolve.”
After the interview, student participants choose one faculty person to respond to their reflections with this question:
What does this interview provoke in you about the skills you strive to teach? Faculty responses are posted with the student interviews.
