Sargent, Winslow Homer, the Hudson River School or J. Singleton Copley worth seeing. Signed by Gilbert Stuart hangs here, the unfinished portrait of George Washington, who served the one-dollar note as a template. However, the MFA also offers an excellent collection of ancient art, the best collection of Egyptian art outside Cairo of the Old Kingdom and the world's most comprehensive collection of Asian art.

MFA at ASU or UNM?

2005-11-30 09:12:22 by fiddlegrrl

I'm appying for MFA program at University of New Mexico and Arizona State University in painting.
Anyone have any experience with either of these 2 programs? I did hear that UNM didn't seem to promote "sharing" of technique between students--resulting in everyone having "secret" methods of doing what they do.
Any info on practice vs. theory slant is also welcome.

There are many different types of ITT course – the one you take will be specific to the age group and, if you want to teach at sec … option that is right for you will depend on your circumstances. You will need a degree and qualified teacher status (QTS) to become a teacher.
