I knew that art would be my passion and the mountains were calling.

Laura Woodman

Major: Interdisciplinary Studies in Psychology and Art

Class of 2014

Figure skating during my childhood taught me about hard work, determination, and the importance of self confidence. At school, art classes were the only classes I stayed interested in, but at SNC I discovered - by happy chance - my love for psychology. I will reach my dreams of helping others through art; it's only a matter of time.

Miranda McFarland

Major: Fine Arts

Class of 2017

Why do we need art? For me this will always be the mystery I crave to understand.
Recently my art has been focusing on my body's relationship to my environment. I came up with the idea to dive into the lake, hold my breath, and scratch circular gestures into a copper plate that I take to the studio and make prints. It is these mark makings that become artifacts of my body. I love being an artist.

Kasey Hartsock

Major: Fine Arts – Photography

Class of 2012

My parents used to tell me that I couldn't draw; I specifically remember them calling me the scribbler, and teasing that I didn't color inside the lines ... Who would have known it would be my major a few years later?

Collyn Aubrey

Major: Fine Arts – Interdisciplinary Arts

Class of 2017

At SNC I found a true community of students and teachers, who pushed me to explore beyond traditional boundaries and believe in myself as an interdisciplinary artist. I would never want to experience undergraduate education any other way.

Sara Lamoreaux

Major: Interdisciplinary Studies in Psychology and Art

Class of 2014

Picking up a crayon at a young age, I knew art was a passion but, during my adolescence, I never pursued art because my schools were focused on math, science, and English. I was never interested in college until I found SNC. It intrigued me because of its intimacy and mission of sustainability.

Growing up in the small town of Incline Village has been a blessing in my life, teaching me the importance of connection with my community and the environment. We all have the capability to help each other grow, and my studies at SNC have shown me just how far we reach!
