This has been one awesome job, let me tell you.
I have loved working with students embarking on creative design adventures and seeing thoughtful portfolios of those whom, when I met them for the first time, had not yet taken Design Fundamentals.
I have also loved working with talented instructors who delight in inspiring others with their work and teaching.
And, if only I could tell you about the parties in the visual arts. There are lots of them, and they involve copious amounts of homemade cake and peanuts. Also, really nice people who make me laugh and think.
However, I'm departing next week for new adventures of my own. While I'm sad to go, as DCA students know, it's exciting to try something new. If you'd like to find me, you can at almasdiary.tumblr.com.
Be sure to tune in to facebook.com/uclaextensionvisualarts to stay informed about what's going on with your design community. Soon, a new blog will be launched (bye, whiteboards) and you don't want to miss it.
Also, keep your eye on the UCLA Employment page for a great opening in the UCLA Extension Visual Arts!
My best to you all.
