AIW Portfolio Show Spring 2010
On Wednesay I attended the Art Institute of Washington’s Spring 2010 Portfolio Show! It is a really cool exhibit at the National Building Museum that allows the graduating students to expose their school work. The school sends out invites to companies in the DC Area, and prospective employers attend, recruit, and network with the students. It is a wonderful opportunity that I cannot wait to participate in in a couple of years (Lord willing….).
Amanda Armon is an Interior Design Graduate. She finished the rigorous curriculum in two years (as opposed to the customary, and already accelerated, three years). She looked both alert and professional while filling me in that she hasn’t slept in two years. She says she never goes anywhere without her ruler, and is a perfectionist, so Interior Design seemed like a good fit for her. She looks forward to being a chair designer while teaching. Her advice to future grads is to sleep while you can.
Best of luck to you, Amanda, and your future business in Charleston!
