Leaving class

The students of Carole Garmon’s “Approaches to Video Art” course are not only studying video art, but they are making some of there own. Check out this “Dear Carole….” video in which the students tell their professor, one-by-one, why they are leaving class. This is too awesome, brilliant work—and it is amazing to see how the study of art and the making of art work together in a course—-and this video provides perfect evidence. What’s more, it was a class project through and through, they all brought something to the table….and then left.

The Aeneid Animated

David Kondner, who is part of professor Angela Pitts’s Katabasis Freshman Seminar, has done a brilliant job animating the epic poem “The Aenied” for his final project. I can’t begin to imagine the time and energy that went into this, and what’s more it’s quite fun. Just another example of the amazing work happening around UMW.
