Interim 2011 On-Campus Projects  

   Chinese Calligraphy 

"I've always been interested in art, but have no artistic ability. I participated in a great project to learn more about art and create our own interpretation of it. We were not graded on ability, but creativity. It was fascinating how color has an effect on our everyday lives in everyday aspects." -Kelsi Koenig, '08
