Hey all! I’m Laurie Larson and I’m studying Animation in the Film and Media Arts Department. I am also looking to dual minor in Ceramics and Sculpture. In short, I hope to see students use ArtsForce and the ELC to help fill in any gaps that they may encounter in their time here in the College of Fine Arts. That might mean using these programs to help make connections or to learn about, for example, the personal finance skills involved with freelance work.
