Hi, my name is Vicki Mayhan; I am the
Department Coordinator for Art at Richland College.
The Department of Art at Richland is geared towards preparing students to go on to...
four-year colleges. We offer all the
entry-level courses, intermediate and
advanced courses, also. We also have an
Emeritus Program that allows seniors
that are 50, and above, to take credit
classes. We engage students with critical
thinking, and we give them the
opportunity to not only follow a
basic curriculum, but also to expand
their creative ideas. My name is Marian
Lefeld, and I teach here at Richland
College. This summer, I'm teaching a
painting class, and I also teach Art Appreciation,
Art History, and Design (Art). Lots of painting, lots of work going on...
the work really comes alive quickly, and I love what my students have been making. Hi, my
name is Charles Coldewey,
I am the Brazos Gallery Coordinator, here
at Richland College. We have about 9
shows a year, that we do. We cover local
artists and out-of-state artists. We also
have a faculty show, and also a student
show. The focus here at the Brazos is
education -- bringing new ideas, creativity,
thoughts, different ways of making art to
students, so they can grow in their
education and understanding of art. I
took this class to learn a little bit
more about art theory, and get better at
I think I've really been able to
do. I definitely don't think I would
have been able to do something like this...
without having taken this class.
Here, I'm deciding to do a dragon egg. For each egg, I'm gonna go through and cut out the
scales -- different colors. Also, gonna
put this film on, to make it shine and
pop out. It's been a really fun class. Right
now, I'm working on a mixed-media art
piece. I'm gonna focus on having
complementary colors, with the blue. I'm
pretty much enjoying myself, because with mixed-media, you can go all out. This is
the chair I made in "e;Design II". I just
found these -- all the recycled items,
in my parent's home... and you can put wine in the bottom of this, so it's really nice.
These classes are very small, and I feel
comfortable talking to the teachers... and
getting along with my classmates as well;
we feel like a little family, so every
semester was like that, and I really
