This week, Truman art professors have been hard at work making supplies accessible to students who can’t travel to campus and get their things. Art student Caroline Snare just received her package that included some patterned fabric she made to match her favorite animal – her dog!
Every year, the art department honors our strongest artists in foundational classes (observational drawing, figure drawing, and three-dimensional design) with a show in the Charlyn Gallery. Then, we choose three particularly successful students to award with scholarships. This year, congratulations goes to Julia Kidwell, Audrey Allison, and Natalie Gruber!

Painting student Madilyn McClain spent three hours face painting at Woofstock on Saturday. Woofstock is a charity even that supports a spay and neuter assistance program for cats and dogs. Thanks for helping in the community, Madi!

The first bronze pour at Truman happened last week! Led by Professor Yakle, students in advanced sculpture melted bronze and poured it into their molds. Keep posted to see the results!
