It’s the last full week of classes and we made it to the target date! You guys have been AMAZING!

Freshman/First year A&D students – please meet in the courtyard between the office and the gallery on Thursday at 11:20 for a 10 minute super important gathering.
Next Monday & Tuesday:

Students, please check your syllabi carefully and make sure you know what is due on Monday and Tuesday, please don’t assume because it is the start of the Thanksgiving week that your classes won’t meet or you won’t have important deadlines, critiques etc.

Holiday Building Access:
All A&D students enrolled in an art class have access to the building until Dec. 12th. If you are going to be in Abilene after 12/12 and need building access to work on things please email me with your name and banner number.
If I think of anything you need to know before we leave I will message later on in the week. Otherwise, finish strong all the way till finals, enjoy the break, take care of yourselves (rest, hydrate, enjoy time with loved ones, breathe, meditate, and be proud that you made it through a nutty year and very odd semester).

Due to the presidential election Instagram has temporarily changed the way users can search hashtags. Unfortunately this removed our ability to view A&D competition  entries. As soon as Instagram returns to its standard search functionality we will resume the competition. In the mean time we encourage you to continue posting work to #acuartanddesign. We are confident it will be viewable when the standard functionality returns.

A&D Sunday Night Bible Study
Hello, All-
Art & Design Bible Study continues this Sunday, 10/25, from 6:30-8:00 (please note time change). We’re working through C.S. Lewis’ The Screwtape Letters, which imaginatively explores issues of temptation and spiritual growth.

All A&D majors and their friends are invited, and first-timers are always welcome (the book is episodic, and you can pretty much jump in anywhere).

Location is TBA, depending on the weather (we’ll either meet in the McGregors’ back yard or inside, on campus. We will email you closer to Sunday with an update.

Due to social distancing requirements, space is limited to 20 attendees, so please RSVP here. Chapel credit IS available.
We hope to see you there!
