Here’s a video of Matt Lively’s AFO Surface class painting murals in the stairwells at Johnson Hall last April! 

Johnson Hall is the dorm that the artist colony is and where most art students live. It’s an older building filled with so much character; every room is a different shape!

Hey guys!!!! So if you’re coming in next fall you might see these magazines all over campus. The journal is called Poictesme and it is completely student run. It includes art, stories, poems, all made by students!! Oh, and the cover art? That’s my work!! 
The VCU Student Media Center publishes many different student run media including magazines, newspapers, journals. It also helps with student blogs like The Horn RVA, which is all about the Richmond music scene or Shafer Bird  which is all about the Richmond food scene. Becoming involved in their publication is a great way to get experience with publishing and getting your work out there! 
Here’s more info about Poictesme and if you wanna see more of the series that made the cover just click here for my website!!

Hello all! I recently returned from my Dean’s International Study Grant trip to the United Kingdom. I spent the month landscape painting in the Lake District and stayed with local families using AirBnB. The application process was simple. I had to write a short essay detailing my ambitions and fill out a budget for the potential trip. As opposed to other study abroad experiences, these trips are completely independent and do not involve a professor or other students.  Though I did not receive academic credit, the $2500 grant covered my expenses. I highly encourage anyone in the art school interested in travel to apply for this opportunity!

VCUARTS Study Abroad #Florence #Italy #OMG

WHATS UP GUYS!!!! So we talk a lot about study abroad opportunities at VCU, especially pertaining to the arts department. We have a ton of sponsored trips all over the world including places like Peru, Ireland, London and Italy. Something I hear people say a lot is that they wish they had studied abroad when they were in college. Luckily, Bridget and I will never have to say that because during the months of May and June we got the opportunity to study abroad in Florence “Firenze” Italy. OMG!!!!!! It was a life changing experience for both of us. We saw beautiful artwork, ate delicious food and had gelato everyday! Yep! Everyday!!!

The trip consisted of two classes earning us 6 credits in total. We stayed for exactly one month in a spacious two-bedroom apartment right in the heart of Florence. Every weekend we had sponsored trips to different places in Italy like Rome, Venice Cinque Terre, and Sienna. We even had a wine tasting in Chianti omg!! So to give you a little taste of what studying abroad is like, we decided to share our experience by posting cool pics from Firenze every week!!!!! So be on the look out for some of our ITALIA adventures.  Ahhhhhh and feel free to ask any questions!!!!!

So I drew a comic for the school newspaper a while back, and a friend wanted to see a digital version of it. Art Foundation advice for the VCU freshman (and transfers into the program, those poor poor souls)
