Semester at Sea offers students classes in nearly every discipline, including art. Using the world as a classroom, students soaked up inspiration from the Amazon River to the Singapore Zoo and brought it all back to the canvas, crafting pieces with the steady hand only an art class on a gently rocking ship can supply. Dr. Suchitra Mattai, who is teaching classes in painting and drawing this semester, brought her art students on class trips around the world, from the Jade Buddha Temple of Shanghai to the Hong Kong Art Museum. Art students even spent a truly unique afternoon at the University of Cape Town, meeting with faculty and students from the School of Fine Arts before heading downtown to South Africa’s National Gallery of Art.
Take a look at some of the student artwork from this semester, currently on display in the Deck 6 gallery.
