Subject:Nicolai Shmatko has presented his new sculpture "Ukrainian Aurora" - Yulia Timoshenko
Posted by:rerter10.
Time:8:16 pm.

Nicolai Shmatko has presented his new sculpture "Ukrainian Aurora" and a new sculpture group "Christ's Appearance to the Apostles".

Nicolai Shmatko has presented his new sculpture "Ukrainian Aurora" and a new sculpture group "Christ's Appearance to the Apostles". It has taken 15 years for him to create the project with the Twelve Apostles.

In his sculptures Nicolai Shmatko decided to deviate from the Bible apostles known to us. "In this sculpture there are our contemporaries, people who live near us. Only Jesus Christ is an imaginary person as nobody can pretend to be like him. We can also see Peter, his favourite disciple, doubting Thomas and Judas. Among the known Bible persons I have embodied myself and my sons"- Nicolai Shmatko retells.

http://www.kingofmarble-shmatko.com/engver/p1_project_en.html The preliminary cost of this sculpture is 1.5 mln. Euro.


The other sculpture of the Nicolai Shmatko "Ukrainian Aurora" has taken him half a year. He retells about it, "Aurora is a morning star which lights up the road of travelers and wayfarers. I decided to accent attention on this and tried to find a woman who can personify national pathos but I could not for a long time. And finally I found national Ukrainian colouring in Julia Timoshenko, Prime Minister of Ukraine".

  Nicolai Shmatko estimates this sculpture in 500 thousand Euro.

The sculptor noted that he is a non-party man and has not any political sympathies to Julia Timoshenko but her image helped him to create our contemporary Aurora.

HI! i'm currently a sophomore at the University of Washington and just submitted my application to the architecture school.  I also am planning on applying to CCA as a transfer student for next spring as a back up.  I know for sure that I want to study architecture so if I dont get into UW's program then I hope to get into CCA.  How difficult is it to get into the architecture program at CCA?  ANY information on increasing my chances of getting in will be really helpful!  =]

i'm currently in community college and looking at schools to transfer to. i'm applying to cca this fall and had a few questions -
1. how is the interdisciplinary program? i'm interested in doing illustration-photo.
2. how does one go about with the financial aid, i hear something like 70% of students are on some form of aid (what scholarships do they offer?)
3. are there any abroad programs offered?

Subject:Looking for Roommates!
Posted by:b000kz.
Time:11:20 am.
I just got accepted to CCA's architecture program, so i am pretty excited about that. I'll be starting in fall but i am planning on moving up to SF during summer. I have already found one roommate to move with me but we are in search for two other roommates who would be willing to share a room to make rent cheaper. We are looking for a 2 bedroom apartment in the city. If any of you are interested or know anyone that wants in, please contact me: bklauert@gmail.com
We are both 18, art students, and open-minded.

Thank you!

Subject:Question about Majors!
Posted by:socialgrit.
Time:8:40 pm.
I'm currently a student out on the East coast, but I'm looking into transferring schools, most specifically CCA. Most schools have their majors that are smaller and not the strongest comparativly, and I was curious how the ID and the Furniture Design programs fall into that (although they seem pretty great). So roughly how good, and how many people are in both of those programs (relative to the school size)? The school I'm attending currently is strongly ID (I'd say almost a fourth of the school here is ID), and it's currently what I'm involved with, although Furniture Design has always been something I've wanted to persue so I figured I'd ask here first.

Also I fucking miss California.

Subject:UC Berkeley dual enrollment
Posted by:mostly_sane.
Time:1:06 pm.
Hi there!
I'm a student at UC Berkeley, a third year student in the fall. I've finished all my lower division classes (visual studies, sculpt 1, draw 1, paint 1, photo, figure drawing) and realized that I do not at all want to be a fine arts major. See, at Berkeley, that's all we have: no illustration, graphic design, animation,etc.

I know I could transfer, but I really, really don't want to- I'm a double major in biology here with reasons to stay, mostly research. But I want to go into illustration. I talked it over with the art major adviser here and she said that credit transfer from CCA would be feasible.

I'm wondering if any one on this livejournal has met any dual enrolled students. NOT extended school students - I want to be with people my age during the actual school year. I figure I'll have to pay the part time student fee (about 1300 a unit..ugh), but I should be okay.

Thanks for any info, and yes, I've emailed the admissions office (it is the weekend though),

Subject:Writing MFA program
Posted by:joelioli.
Time:2:55 pm.
Hey Kids:

I'm getting ready to start in the MFA in Writing program in CCA this fall and I'm in the process of registering for classes. Definitely trying to hear any opinions on teachers? Good classes to take? Classes to not take? Common problems students run into, how to avoid them and whatever. Anything would be extremely helpful.

Subject:What is Architecture program like?
Posted by:hotrodvr.
Time:1:00 pm.
I'm just wondering what the Architecture program is like. I am very seriously considering attending CCA for the Arch program. The idea of going to an art school and working in different areas of the arts really draws my attention more than anything else. However, I've got a couple of concerns.
First, what's the situation like for a transfer student? I'm currently attending a college in Sacramento and will be planning to transfer in Fall of 09.  Is the transition easy for a transfer student? I'm from California anyway and have lived away from my parents for about 10 years now.

Second, what's the housing situation like for a transfer? Is it difficult to find roommates and possibly even live in San Francisco? I live in the norcal area so I'm not a stranger to the bay area. Is it better to live with roommates or in a dorm? I've lived in a dorm before and although it's a great experience I honestly don't really want to repeat it.

Third, are there many students attending who are a little bit older. I see that most people attending seem to be out of high school. I think that's awesome but as for me I'm in my early 30's and I would like to get an opinion from someone who's maybe in my age range. I don't know if anyone else is in this situation but I've got a car, bills, insurance, and no financial support from my parents.

Thanks guys for your opinions and suggestions. I was in the military for eight years which explains why just now I'm going to school.

Subject:OCEANIA: local San Jose/South Bay student film @ CINEQUEST 2008!
Posted by:hdehal.
Time:11:32 am.
Hey guys, we REALLY need some local support! Please check our film out at the Cinequest Film Festival March 6th and March 8th. More info below:

Two teenagers deal with their shattered family-life in a small California coastal town.

We started filming when we were in high school (I was 17). Many of the people involved went to Piedmont Hills High School in San Jose, and some actors are from SF, Mill Valley, Palo Alto, etc. It was truly a local effort, and...

It was a rather large volunteer effort. The final budget was around $3,500 or so. Shooting took place on and off for a whole year and editing took me about nine more months. This will be our first and possibly last major screening...

We will be having two screenings:

OPENING NIGHT: 03/06/08 Thursday 7:00 PM
San Jose Repertory Theatre

101 Paseo De San Antonio
San Jose, CA 95113

CLOSING NIGHT: 03/08/08 Saturday 7:30 PM
Camera 12 Cinema San Jose

288 S 2nd St
San Jose, CA 95113

For more info go directly to the Cinequest 2008 site:

Also, please feel free to bring friends! It would mean a lot to us to get more locals out to see the film!

Subject:Idiolexicon Poetry Series, February 11
Posted by:elliotharmon.
Time:10:28 am.
Hi there, CCA cats. It's Elliot the lab monitor.

I'm starting a new reading series next month. It will be a wonderful time and you should all come. Featuring CCA alum Myron Michael.

The Idiolexicon Poetry Series is a reading and concert series that will showcase innovative, challenging poets and musicians from the Bay Area and beyond. The Series will bring together poets who may not usually share the same stage: slam meets experimental, hip-hop meets academia. The point is ostensibly to bring together diverse work and audiences, but really the point is just to put together exciting readings. A lot of poetry—just like a lot of movies and a lot of music—is bad, so you really can't afford to limit yourself too much.
