Presentation at MCA

My name is Olivia Wall, and I am a MFA in Photography student. As part of my Art History Independent Study, I am presenting a paper on the effect of text and titles on image interpretation and the implications of such in the Digital Age. The paper, thus far, has been accepted into four academic conferences, and I look forward to sharing it with the MCA academic community first. 

The presentation is scheduled for May 1, at 11am, in Myers Auditorium. I invite all those interested to attend. Thank you very much.

There are a few workshops on the verge of completely fulling and several that are already wait list only. The ones that are close to closed are likely go to the swift as the next 4 weeks are typically the busiest for enrollment. Don't jump before you are sure, but don't get comfortable either if your workshop is close to closed.

The list below is broken up by spaces left. Some workshops were sold out and have had regrets from participants who needed to cancel. Wait list workshops are listed before Fall workshops at the bottom of the email.

The availability of space in each workshop is fluid. If you try to make your deposit through the Add to Cart button and it won't let you chances are it is sold out. Email me to be certain.
