A Film Student’s Day at Academy or Art University

Students may worry about what comes after high school. After all, it is a huge change to move elsewhere and be living on one’s own as an adult for the first time. What is to be expected? Many wonder this before taking the leap.

Academy of Art University recently had a freshman show what a new film student does from the time he wakes until he goes to bed at night. This is something to give prospective students a taste of what to expect is coming for them, and to let them feel more comfortable and prepared about the situation as a whole.

The student is Sam Bear and he starts his day at nine in the morning in his dormitory. He prepares for the rest of the day and heads out to catch a shuttle with his student ID that will take him to where he needs to go on campus. For him, his first class is at eleven in the morning and it is about production design. He makes good use of places on campus such as the libraries, lounges, studios, and classrooms. Sam spends time hanging out with friends and also goes to a campus cafe, which there are several of located around the city. Sam has an entire blog post and video up on the internet for those interested in knowing what his days are like.

The Academy of Art University is in San Francisco, California and was established in 1929. It is the largest private accredited art and design school in the country. The student body is diverse with about 14,000 students from all over the world. The Academy has over thirty facilities and offers degrees in more than thirty areas of study. This is the perfect place for a student to spend their days.

Article Title: Inspiring Change: Carrie Mae Weems Joins Forces With Sharon Prince At Grace Farms

Grace Farms is a space for the public to engage with nature, arts, and community. It is an open space based in Connecticut to stimulate change through conversations to help inspire good in the world. It has reaped many awards for its revolutionary work in arts, environmental and social issues. Its core values lie within providing a welcoming space and a hopeful space, which is sparse but incredibly necessary.

Grace Farms was founded by Sharon Prince, a graduate of the University of Tulsa with a knack for social justice and spirituality. Prince’s innovation and vision to create a community centered around faith and inspiring hope in the world has provided a safe space for people to discuss and experience enhanced lives. Her vision has come to fruition with the success of Grace Farms as a trailblazer to bring together diverse minds for collaboration.

Prince says “Hopeful spaces alone can’t drive change. You need people who can envision what can be and vigorously work to accomplish it.”

The Foundation has recently brought on artist, Carrie Mae Weems to encourage more powerful thought on societal violence and injustice. Weems put on a performance called Past Tense which moves through the discussion of the injustices, inequality, and violence around race. She takes the crowd on a journey through America’s violent past and present, but ends with a beacon of hope where change and peace can be established. Weems’ ability to discourse and juxtapose distressing topics with inspiring hope, strongly coincides with Grace Farm’s five initiatives of Nature, Arts, Justice, Community, and Faith.

Grace Farms located in New Canaan, Connecticut is open six days a week and is free to the public.
