BOSTON!

Boston University was the destination for the Summer Studio portion of my masters degree.  How often we hear art educators talk of the isolation of our positions. Imagine spending 10+ days with 40 art educators, creating art and sharing, lots of sharing of ideas and tips.  A big plus was spending time in a wonderful city. I truly LOVE the city of Boston. I met and bonded with several art teacher and am sad that I wasn't the one to take the pictures so I have to email them to get a copy so I can share my new friendships with you.
I took printmaking and portrait painting as my electives. Learned a ton of different techniques

Thanks Janice for capturing this moment of yuck.
Tried a Chai tea of some sort (honestly) thought it was a creamsicle type, but ahh no.

View from the dorm, breathtaking

Food Trucks, a new favorite

  1. My 24 year old son lives in Boston. It is expensive to live, but such a fabulous place for young adults! He loves living there.

  2. Thanks Phyl, my oldest son is 25 and I thought of him the whole time I was there. He is graduating soon in architecture and Boston has so much to see. Plus he loves to jog and bike. Even in the heat people were jogging, I thought seriously people take a day off. Anyway I may head back in May to get my diploma and take the gang with me. I've heard west of BU it's a bit cheaper to live.

  4. Kristin, definitely a favorite city now although I've heard the taxes are crazy high to live there. The great part about Boston University's program is the community of art teachers. It's only been a few weeks but we are staying in touch via instagram, fb and cheering each other through the process. Tough, tough program especially the writing aspect. I'll be finished in December!
