The magic of being an art major begins with studio classes. A studio class takes place in — you guessed it — a studio, and is a couple hours of making art with classmates. I have had many fond memories of chatting in class with my friends or people who became my friends afterward while making prints, embroidering fibers projects or choosing and re-choosing colors for a poster. The collaborative nature of these classes teaches students about giving and receiving feedback from their peers.
