This video includes the responses to an interview with one of our online M.Ed. students, Lauren Sahmel. Beautiful production and editing from Lianne Jepson and Desiree Farnum.
Why make art? Why write or photograph or paint anything?
“If you can take that first step toward communication, toward understanding, toward love, then no matter how difficult the future may be- and have no illusions, even with all the love in the world, living can be hellishly difficult- then, you are saved. This is all that really matters, isn’t it?” – Ingmar Bergman, 1964
