Upon arriving at Duke, there seemed to be something missing in my college career. I just didn't feel fulfilled, until I took a course titled Visual Cultures of Medicine. It made me more aware of the intersections between art and science while reminding me of my passion. This motivated me to delve fully into the arts and is how I ended up taking this course.
This course has reminded me of the joy I get out of actually making art rather than simply studying it. This course is a wonderful introduction to the more advanced classes, such as intermediate drawing and painting. The environment and method of instruction is quite constructive. Having Maira Kalman visit our class was also an amazing experience. It's comforting to see other artists showcase their work and to see their success. Overall I had a wonderful time in this class and would recommend it to anyone interested in exercising their creativity
