About Kaitlin

Prospective students! My name is Kaitlin. I am currently fulfilling my undergraduate degree as a double major in both Art History and Anthropology. I'm in the last semester of my lower division requirements which are being fulfilled at SRJC. I will be going to SSU in the Fall of 2016 to finish my upper division in the next year and a half. I currently take 22 units a semester, I must love school! In addition to this, I'm also a teacher's assistant at Sonoma State University for an ancient art history class that focuses on art from the prehistoric to the gothic. I have 20 students that I look after in this class at SSU and I do everything from grade their research papers, fulfill office hours and chat about anything related to the subject, and help the professor keep organized. I will be teaching my first lecture in a couple of weeks about the Greek society! I have been a teacher's assistant for this class and subject for two semesters now and I have a wild passion for inspiring people to re-evaluate their ideas about art history.

Maintaining a 3.7 GPA with the amount of units I take is no easy feat so being organized is inherent in my psyche. I find that through being a teacher's assistant I've been able to not only add to my students academic awareness but also level of organizational skills. I approach student's with a paramount level of respect -- no patronizing tone from me. I find that my age, being 25, has helped me seem more accessible to student's which I'm very happy for. I hope to continue to embody what it means to be approachable. I strive to create a setting where critical thinking must be applied as I believe this is the way to fully understand the fundamentals of the subject at hand.

Anthropology! What a subject! I fell in love with Anthropology when I took Biological Anthropology a couple of years ago. From that point on I have taken nearly every Anthropology class at SRJC. I'm most passionate about regional native american populations and have taken classes specifically for this. I often drive out to the Pt.Reyes area to hunt for obsidian for hours on end and have succeeded in finding arrow heads used to fish! Working as a local interpreter for the Sonoma Coast or Pt.Reyes Coast is a dream of mine so I soon plan on becoming more involved in that coastal community. I am currently applying and waiting to see if I qualify for an archaeological aid position at the Sonoma Coast.

As far as Art History goes it was always my first love and first major. There's something lovely about viewing world history in this lens as it offers a peek into an individuals successes, a times successes and subsequent downfalls. Fascinating. As mentioned earlier, I'm done with all requirements for the lower division portion of my undergrad and have a year and a half to finish. I am a T.A. for an ancient art history course at SSU and have twenty students that I assist and grade papers for. I've been doing this successfully for two semesters and it's been a joy. To be considered for graduate school, it's often that two languages are required so I do speak French and am currently learning Russian. Most likely due to the euro-centricity of the art world, much of my course work has revolved around Europe. That being said, I've also studied ancient near-eastern cultures in just as much depth but I'm limited in my knowledge of the far east.
As far as art goes, it's an activity that's been pervasive throughout my entire life. I have been drawing, like most of us, since I was very young! I have taken figure drawing and various courses in college to add to my inherent love of art. I draw at least six hours a week, I'm in an art course right now even. Having the fundamentals of art down such as capturing mass, volume, and line in an object or person really adds to how one views life and then draws it or even to understanding art history on a deeper level. Feel free to ask if you'd like to see my work.

This concludes a little about me! Now please, feel free to contact me for any help in the aforementioned subjects. I can be quite flexible and would love to sit down for an hour or two to talk art history, anthropology, or even how to draw! I look forward to hearing from you and I leave you with this...
