My friend Dawn thinks that going back to Art School is the domain of 20 year olds. Well I'm here to dispel that rumour. In the last ten years of my teaching at Sheridan the demographic of Art students has changed and with that the number of students over the age of 50 has increased dramatically. In the last few years I have taught Veternarians, architects, lawyers, teachers, administrators, Phd's, stock brokers and the list goes on. All of them were woman and most over the age of 45. So if you have ever given going to Art School a second thought and you thought you'd be in with a group of pimply faced, snotty nosed teenagers think again. I would then go on to say that even if the student is 20 something they already have a University degree in most cases.
I am also most proud of the multi cultural cross section of students at Sheridan. Here is the graduating class of 2014 and some awesome sculptural work by Habiba- El Sayed and Marissa Alexander. Sorry I didn't get the work of the others. Too much smoozing to do.
