It seems like everyone and their mother is an art major at Skidmore, but how do you know if you’re really one of the pack?
- You have pulled an all-nighter in the studio and/or napped on the padded textiles tables.
- A five-page paper is unbelievably long. Ten pages? Forget it.
- You respond awkwardly when those hilarious adults refer to your education as a “Major in Unemployment.”
- When your friends complain about their two-hour classes, you laugh…
- You’re shockingly unfazed when paint/clay/ink/dye stains your new shirt because, hey, you look artsy!
- You miss out on the social experience that is the library.
- Your dorm/bedroom looks more like an art gallery.
- You never have to worry about buying Christmas and birthday gifts for friends and family.
- You’re automatic poster designer for your club and pause at every poster that says something about a “design contest.”
- You take pen quality very seriously. (Almost too seriously.)
- You cringe at the word “research.”
- The notebooks for your other classes have essentially become additional sketchbooks.
- You’re either a pro at DIY Halloween or panic because your costume has to be totally artsy and creative.
- Dark nail polish is your best friend (since it’s the only thing that hides the charcoal stains…).
- Your friends say, “Make me one!” or “Draw me!” every time you bring a new project home.
- You feel superior to art school students because of your “well-rounded education.” (Thanks Glotzy.)
- When people ask you what you want to do after graduation you list at least three totally different art-related jobs.
