Michael's Story

My passion is interior design. Ever since I was a young boy, I always enjoyed art and design. It was something I always enjoyed doing with my parents. My father would always draw pictures for my mother. He also once drew a floor plan, which made me want to study architecture. I want to attend Parsons After-School Academy this fall because I will soon be applying to college and this program will help me start creating a portfolio, which most art schools will ask for. It will also help me gain more formal experience in my artistic interests.

A Note from , Michael's Teacher

I have known Michael for the past three years. He has always expressed an interest in the arts, particularly interior design. He is currently seeking art schools to apply to and is very interested in Parsons, in addition to other art schools. In our school, Michael has taken studio art, ceramics, and mixed media. Being a part of Parsons New School for Design program will expand his techniques and skills as well as provide him with experience in a field he loves. This would be a wonderful opportunity, one I know Michael is looking forward to being a part of and eager to learn from.

Accepted to Parsons The New School

Hi everyone! I just wanted to share some good news with you: I was accepted into Parsons School of Design as an undergraduate and will be starting in the fall. Also, I want to say thank you again for supporting my campaign. I really enjoyed myself during the winter and spring at Parsons's after school program.

An update from my program at Parsons!

My program at Parsons has been going very well. At first it was kind of intimidating because some of the students had more experience in fashion design than I did. The professor made sure we didn't feel that way because this is something we have to learn to deal with in the art industries. I have been learning a lot these past few weeks. I've mastered the art of Croquies, which are fashion models, and also we've worked on mood boards that in the future will be used to create a fashion collection. We are also currently working on creating a sketch book which will include all the projects we've created in class. Every week is something new and inspiring, which has truly helped me a lot in creating my portfolio for when I apply to colleges this fall. I am very grateful for this opportunity. Thank you!

Hi, Michael! I am a landscape architect and high school environmental science teacher who enjoys supporting people who add more beauty to the world! My sister is an interior designer and my husband is an architect. Spend your youth enjoying and learning to identify what constitutes a great space and when you enter college you will be ready to start designing them. Create a file of images that inspire you (I enjoy the Houzz App) and reference them often. Best wishes for a fun career!
