EVENT: Live Drawing Experience (AUG 29 | 6-9 PM)

27 Aug

To find out more information on this event visit http://www.utahmoca.org/

How would you define contemporary storytelling? Do comic books fit within that definition? With the depth of story and character development found in most comic books and graphic novels, does that distinction need to be made anymore? For Between Panels, local comic book artist and illustrator, Brandon Dayton, brings together a group of similarly minded artists to examine the art of the comic book, the stories told within, and the process by which they are created.

Join us August 29th for a live collaborative exquisite corpse drawing experience by this group of artists to see how they respond to each other’s way of drawing and storytelling.

OPINION: Killing the College Major

11 Aug

Canadian schools have been contemplating getting rid of majors at their universities. The idea is that 18 year olds entering school don’t know what they want to do and take years to decide. There is enough pressure to perform and get into a good school without adults telling kids yet another thing they need to be doing. If you don’t know what you want to be going into college, is that really anyone’s business? Most adults go back to school after years of working because they still don’t know what they want to do. With the market ever changing, job qualifications are also being outdated as fast as any other technology. Getting a number of skills instead of one specific set may be just the right attitude to take in this new economy.

-Brien Arnold

 

A proposal for a new university in Canada recently caught my eye for a host of reasons, not the least of which is that its students wouldn’t have majors. Instead, the students would be able to “distinguish themselves through practical and demonstrable skills in four areas of focus—technology, entrepreneurship/management, health professions, and creative industries.”

For most college students, the idea of a major is outdated in a 21st Century economy in a constant state of flux. College majors are for the most part an organizing function for the faculty of an institution who want to have departments for their academic disciplines.
