I don’t think I have ever been happier for a semester to come to an end. For some reason, this semester was my hardest since I have been a student at LIM College between exams, homework, and of course my favorite (not!), group projects. Although I still have to contend with finals next week, I’m taking a quick break and evaluating which class was my favorite this semester. And the winner is (imagine the sound of a drum roll right about now)…History of Art with one of the best professors I have ever had, Dr. Saleeby.
I usually always enjoy the liberal arts courses offered at LIM College the most. For example, I took Creative Writing as a freshman and I loved it so much that I would actually look forward to writing assignments. My professor inspired and encouraged me to believe in myself as a writer, because it turns out that not only do I enjoy it, but I’m also kind of good (although I’m not trying to brag).
History of Art was one of the most interesting classes I have ever taken, even considering the fact that I have taken many art history courses and frequently visit museums. The reason the class was so intriguing was not only because of the beautiful paintings and sculptures I learned about, but also because Dr. Saleeby made it so much fun. She was extremely expressive when she would tell us about the myths of the paintings and when she would encourage us to find the symbols in the paintings we studied. The class made me want to continue learning about art well after the course was finished.
I encourage anyone who’s reading this to definitely take History of Art if (and when!) you come to LIM College because it’s not only fun, but it will also help you in other courses when you need to find inspiration or reference design periods.
Until next week! (if I can manage to make it through finals!)
