Student Laura Krick is this year’s winner of Sheridan’s annually awarded Dr. Annie Smith Travel Scholarship in Art and Art History. Laura will have the opportunity to study modernist architecture in Istanbul, Turkey in order to gather research material for her paintings. The winner of the Dr. Annie Smith Travel Scholarship is selected through a vote by studio faculty and staff.
On November 18, the Art and Art History ran their annual student awards program in the Annie Smith Centre. The annual alumni keynote speaker was Michelle Gay, who spoke about her diverse career as an artist, maker, designer, advocate, “technology tinkerer” and the driving curiosity that led her to complete both an MFA at NSCAD, and just recently a Master of Information Science at the University of Toronto’s Knowledge, Media, Design Institute.
