Graduating from Tallahassee Community College this spring semester, art student Lauren Courtemanche plans on enrolling at Florida State University for the summer of 2018. With an interest in majoring in art, the Talon conducted an interview with Courtemanche to learn more about what she’s creating in her TCC screen printing class.
Talon: What do you want to do for your career?
LC: “Teach middle school art.”
Talon: What are your hopes for taking this class?
LC: “I want to be able to broaden my horizons, and screen printing sounds like something that’s so modern and contemporary”.
Talon: What is your art medium?
LC: “Definitely charcoal. I really like acrylic painting, and I also really enjoy doing graffiti.”
Talon: What do you want to be able to achieve after taking this course?
LC: “I want to be able to mass produce. I think a lot of art now involves stencil and printing and I like how each technique is different from one another”.
Talon: What makes you, you?
LC: “I think I’m fortunate enough to be involved in the art community. My parents really encouraged me to follow what I’m interested in. Being in a creative environment has really helped me find who I am.”
Talon: What does being an art student at TCC mean to you?
LC: “As a TCC student, I think I’ve been given more than enough resources. I also think that there are enough people here that can connect you with who you need to know”.
