Hilary Harkness Master Class, Vincent Desiderio Master Class, more gallery openings, visits with some second year students in studio, and the start of a large, 80" x 96" History Painting based on the ritualistic Samurai tradition of Seppuku. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seppuku)
The schedule is intense and getting more so by the day, so I hope you enjoy this blog and gain some insight into the amount of amazing stuff going on this semester...
