On the first day of registration, the school had this poster out welcoming us to The China Academy of Art
On my way to the International Student Department to register, I found this cool staircase with many students taking photographs on it.
Over the next week of orientation and lectures, I strolled the campus grounds discovering many hidden treasures. Our school is made up of a few campus', but this one is famous for it's architecture and design.
There are also many sculptures scattered around this campus, making it have the atmosphere of a school full of art students. Every time I walk around campus I feel inspired and encouraged just by the sculptures and galleries filled with student work.
While exploring the campus during orientation week, I also found the school's exhibition and art museum. Not only is the art inside the museum beautiful, but so is the building itself.
This is the second main campus that I visited during orientation week. This campus is where my studio is and normally have all my classes except Chinese class. It is also a phenomenal campus, situated across from the most famous scenic spot in Hangzhou known as West Lake. Later I'll post about West Lake to show you the beauty it encapsulates.
My good friend Lily from Hangzhou came to visit my campus after class one day. While I was applying to the school, she was a great friend and supported my decision to apply for grad school. She also gave me a lot of encouragement and helped revise my portfolio before I sent in my application to the school.
This campus is also quite beautiful. This is a picture from inside the building our studio is in. Each season brings our school new colors and a different kind of atmosphere.
