Goals/Aspirations for MFA Program
I see being in an MFA program as a chance to develop as an artist and as a professional. Above all, I plan on making the best work I have ever made in my life. I have three years to work and develop surrounded by the faculty and other students in the program, without needing a job outside of school to pay for a studio or student loan payments. I can focus completely on my art practice. Even my job during these three years is in the same building as my studio. I can train and prepare to teach art while I'm here. This is certainly better than any nine-to-five job I could have gotten with just a BFA. Maybe I should have more a plan, but that's all I've got right now. I'm happy with where I am now, and I can't wait to see what opportunities arise over the next three years.
