Daily Campus: The UConn Experience is a Unique One for an Art Major

Caitlyn Hanlon is a 7th-semester fine arts major, focusing on photography.

Her classes start around 9:30 a.m., just like most students. She takes two different types of classes, normal lectures, like Chinese contemporary art history and then studio courses, like photography or drawing. Her studio classes last three hours.

Time management, Hanlon said, is an important aspect of an art student’s life.

“It’s hard to organize, very time consuming,” Hanlon said. “Setting up and cleaning up takes a while. I can’t go to Starbucks and read from my textbook, you have to set up, work on your project and then clean up, it takes a lot of time. One has to plan what to do first and when to do it. For example when you are painting with oil you paint for a while, let it dry and work on another project and wait until it dries to continue.”
