   What’s better than free food and crafts? Last Wednesday, Campus Housing hosted Pizza and Painting for housing residents in the Community Building. The event offered students an opportunity to paint along with an IU South Bend art student and eat delicious pizza.

   The event was open to the first 30 people and lasted from 7 pm to 9 pm. Genevieve South, a freshman studying drawing and painting, led students through an art class that taught them how to paint pumpkins.

   Each student was given a small canvas, paint and brushes. While everyone received the same materials, students were allowed to paint freely or follow along with the demonstration. While South led the painting class, students enjoyed Papa John’s and refreshments.

   Hi! My name is Taylor Garrett, and I am an incoming page layout intern for The Preface. Since I am going to be working with the newspaper you read so often, I thought that I would introduce myself!

   Currently, I am a sophomore here at IU South Bend and am majoring in Fine Arts with a concentration in Graphic Design. I have always been creative and am really enjoying learning more about my major. Being able to put my ideas and love for everything art into what I do in the future is something I’ve always dreamed about! 

   I am from North Liberty, Ind. and still currently live there. I have been to Tennessee and Florida several times in the past years, but also have visited the Grand Canyon, Rocky Mountains and Arches National Park.
