Interns' Choice from the Summer Bemis Catalog

The FAC interns in the Marketing and Museum offices have been working hard all semester to bring you online and gallery content. Before we pack up for vacation, we came together to choose our favorite summer Bemis classes. Take a look at these choice picks, and hopefully it'll inspire you to sign up for the Bemis Summer Session that begins June 4!

This class appeals to me since I want to improve my design skills for my future journalistic endeavors.  I already work for my school newspaper as an editor and I would like to also be able to work as a layout editor. Since this class offers the opportunity to improve my design skills, I will become more well-rounded for a possible career in Journalism.

Before I go shopping I always imagine what my perfect outfit is going to be. Nine times out 10 I end up disappointed and leave without an outfit. I've always wanted to sketch my own clothes in hopes of one day being able to wear them. With sketching fashion, you get to determine where each part of the material lays on the design. You can add a touch of yourself to sketch designs with little details. Plus, sketching fashion allows you to transform your ideas from paper to real fashionable works of art

Artwork created using colored wax
Kelly (Museum Intern, junior History & Philosophy major at CC)
A76, A77 Introduction to the Art of Encaustics
Sat., 6/9 | 9 a.m.-12:00 p.m. OR 1:00-4 p.m.

How cool does the word "encaustics" sound by itself? It's an art form that brings together tons of different techniques, including collage, carving, monotypes, and the list goes on. Another plus? It's just a half-day commitment, and you'll walk away with a solid foundation to pursue Painting with Encaustics workshops PLUS your own encaustic painting. Here's a video of some beginning encaustic painting techniques.

Here's the full catalog — online or PDF. Classes begin June 4.
