After taking the Intro to Visual Arts class at UCC, Emily Michel became inspired to declare art as her major. She is also part of the Transfer Opportunity Program which is helping her to establish a pathway to transfer to Oregon State University-Cascades in the fall. Her goal is to become a web designer, and a dream project would be to design a website for a non-profit organization.
“I love how inclusive my instructor is and how she gives us a lot of room for creative expression,” she said.
She is now preparing some of her artwork for the upcoming student art exhibit opening soon for the first time in two years as The Art Gallery was closed due to the pandemic. “I am looking forward to the show, and I think everyone should check it out. I will have some pieces in the show, and it will be my first one, which is exciting!”
