It’s the time of year when not only Christmas is in the air, but also graduation. The seniors have just a few days remaining and then they will officially be finished with their degrees and I will officially be sad to see them go!

I will be especially sad to say goodbye to these girls. They have been in many of my classes. The girl on the right, Sung-eun, has been my student every semester that I have taught at Keimyung and last semester she was in all three of my classes. She’s special. . . but really, they all are!

Last week was the graduation exhibition for my department, Craft Design. Each student had to create three pieces using materials of fiber, clay, wood or metal. Some students did work across the materials divide but most stuck with one area for their three pieces.

Notice all the flowers on the floor? It is common to bring your friends or relatives gifts when they have an exhibition. There are lots of flowers, but also candy and sweets with notes of congratulations. Instead of giving the flowers or candy to the person, you leave it next to the work for the artist to find and others to see.

Tomorrow night is a party for the graduating Seniors and we have only 7 more days of school before a long winter vacation!
