Beth Melton’s freshman ARTT 112 class, Intro to Fine Arts, during Journal Making Workshop. According to Professor Melton the purpose of the workshop was to create a “Common Object” – and to experience creating something together as a community of artists. She says the journal also has a practical purpose. Students will record thoughts, sketches and impressions throughout the semester in response to journal prompts and guest speakers. The resulting journal will be considered part of the Journal Project requirement for the class. Melton credits upperclassmen Grace Windey, Charlie Hickey and Dylan Bannister as instrumental in helping to facilitate the workshop.
