a pesky little thought has lodged in my brain and refuses to leave.
i'm beginning to entertain the idea of getting my m.f.a. in painting. (i take it out to dinner, we see movies. it's very amused, this idea of mine.)
the only problem i can forsee (besides having to unlearn many of the techniques developed once the whole shindig is over (quite like i had to do with undergrad. i did NOT want to be derivative of my painting profs, thank you very much.)) is funding. because i cannot take out student loans.
i've got a little under a year to get to work on the portfolio (which i've been updating lately anyway), artist statement, application letter, blah de blah de blah. (no gre for artists. we don't even have to take miller analogy. which is a shame because i've always wanted to take that one.)
but what say you, dear readers? am i being foolish to consider completing my fine arts education? (fine art degrees only reach the masters level. there is no phd program.)
in all honesty, i'd only be attempting the program to try to aquire an adjunct prof position once it's all over. (i mean, tenure track would be nice, but let's be realistic...) think it's a good idea???
