Visual artist looks to hone skills beyond Whitman

Senior visual art major Noah Greene looks to continue his artistic career after graduation, pursing the craft he studied during his time at Whitman.

As a lifelong artist, Greene cannot imagine life without a creative medium.

“I’ve kind of made art my whole life and it’s something that if I’m not too involved in some creative process then I feel pretty worthless,” said Greene.

Studying art at Whitman and learning from faculty members have helped him fine-tune his skills and determine the types of art that appeal to him most.

“I think that I’ve found the faculty to be really helpful and it has been what I have needed to narrow the focus and sharpen skills,” said Greene.

Greene’s favorite part of his artistic experience was the projects he made through independent study under the supervisor of professors.

“I’ve enjoyed independent studies more than anything else I’ve done because I enjoy working more on my own impetus then, and I’ve definitely found faculty to be pretty encouraging in that kind of independent study,” said Greene.

Greene enjoys reusing objects to make his art.

“I work a lot with scrap metal and found objects, and I like to work on a large scale,” said Greene.

After graduation, Greene wants to continue to study art in an academic setting. Greene will take a year off before pursuing an MFA in the fall of 2012.
