Lindsay Blevins, a College of Art and Design illustration graduate (pictured above) enrolled in our Paris course to fulfill a lifelong dream of experiencing all of the wonderful things that she'd learned
about in class and from books. In Paris, she visited museums and
monuments, explored small
bookstores and boutiques, and practiced French with native Parisians. Lindsay wouldn't have been able to participate in this life-changing experience without an award from Lesley's Scholars without Borders scholarship program. In a thank you letter to the donor, she wrote,
As an artist, Paris was extremely inspiring to me. From the art in the Musee d'Orsay, to the design of the Metro, to the architecture of the Notre Dame, I found things that made me look at art and design from new and exciting perspectives. I gained so much in Paris – I truly feel I have grown, and that I have a much greater understanding of not only French culture, but of the world.
- Lindsay Blevins, College of Art and Design, 2014
College of Art and Design Design major, Jackie Barnes, also received a Scholars without Borders award for Spring 2014 participation in Graphic Design London, a three-credit course taught by Professor Kristina Lamour Sansone. Jackie described the experience as "unlike anything I have done before. It enhanced my already
strong desire to live for an extended period in the fantastic city of London. I studied there again for the entire fall 2014 semester, and am considering relocating to London after graduation."
As part of Graphic Design London, Professor Lamour Sansone arranged for meetings with
renowned designers, in-depth study of museum exhibits, and a visit to St. Bride's Library, where students viewed a page of the Egyptian Book of the Dead. Inspired by the London Science Museum, Jackie decided to engage in a course project to compare and contrast differences in how the London and Boston Museums of Science organize information about individual exhibits.
