Picasso Considers Working At DCAD!?

Why Should DCAD Hire Picasso?

Picasso Considers Working At DCAD!?
Holly Dechant

For my Art History III class we had the chance to do a creative writing assignment, and this assignment was to embody the personality of a famous artist and to write an artist statement for them or an application to get a job at our school, DCAD. I personally like my writing assignments to have a little humor in them, so I thought the application option would be perfect for me. The next step was picking an artist to write in their perspective. Since I wanted something that would leave my teacher laughing a bit here and there, I decided to embody a famous artist with a big ego: Pablo Picasso! I would say my next step was to research him, but I was already doing research about him for a different essay, so I pretty much had his pompous attitude under wrap. So without further ado, here is my letter to DCAD from Picasso explaining why the school should hire him.

Dear DCAD,

I, Pablo Picasso, am giving you the privilege to hire me as your Fine Arts area coordinator. Why should you hire me you ask? I’m THE Picasso. I am more than qualified to guide the young artists of today into the future at your little two-year school of art. You’ve probably — no, you’ve defiantly — heard of my work since I’m so famous. Examples of my creative genius that you would recognize are: “Les Demoiselles d’Avignon” (1907, Early Cubism), “Ma Jolie” (1911-1912, Analytic Cubism), “Still-Life with Chair-caning” (1912, Synthetic Cubism), “Three Women at the Spring” (Classicism, 1921), and “Guernica” (1937, Surrealism). Plus, as you can tell by these examples, I have a wide range of styles and techniques to bring to the table as a teacher/ area coordinator. Additionally, I have a strong understanding of the fundamentals for drawing and designing (as seen in my blue and rose periods) but can also push into abstraction (as seen in my cubist and surrealistic periods). This means I can not only teach your students to understand the basics of drawing and design but also open their mind to thinking outside the box. In today’s age, you need a teacher and area coordinator that will push the creativity of your fine art students, and that DCAD, is me — Picasso!




Better act quick and hire me before I decide to move on to a different period of my art career!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
