    Courtney's Bio:
    I'm an Elementary Education major at CSS. I also plan to minor in Spanish. Having done PSEO, I came to CSS with more than 60 credits. I'm part of Volunteers Involved Through Action (VITA), Students Today Leaders Forever (STLF), and other clubs! Dance has been part of my life for 10 years, and now I'm trying to fit it into my schedule again. I love spending time watching Supernatural and Once Upon a Time, and reading Harry Potter and other great books. I live in a suite with 3 other girls, and we are always finding something fun to do around campus!

Painting Critiques

Today I had Advanced Painting. We started class of by critiquing one another’s paintings. I have just recently finished an Audrey Hepburn painting and I am currently working on a second one, a Walt Disney tribute. I really like painting famous people that I admire, so I haven’t really thought of a message behind my paintings. This totally arose in the critique today when my professor asked me what message I was trying to convey with my painting. It was definitely a “uh… uh…. I like Disney?” moment. My professor explained that there’s nothing wrong with just having a tribute painting that isn’t designed with the audience in mind, but I should start thinking of doing some paintings that convey meaning. This totally has stumbled me and I am still trying to find inspiration for my next painting… To be continued.
