Kate’s Bio

1. Name: Kate Nolan

2. Year: 2014

3. Major/Minor: Undecided!

4. Hometown: Hanover, Massachusetts

5. Photography experience: Not much besides taking random pictures 🙂

6. What are your reasons for taking this class? I’m interested in community service and photography, therefore this was perfect!

7. Explain your idea of community: Community to me is the bringing together of all different types of people with different backgrounds, different interests, and different ways of life, where they can learn from one another and most of all gain new experiences that allow them to work together and do amazing things.

8. Who is your City Art Artist buddy? Ashara, Eva and Stephanie

9. What is your service experience (scope of service experience): I have spent a lot of time in my life working with some amazing tennis players that my Mom coaches for the Special Olympics and most recently have gotten involved with a non-profit grass-roots soccer organization called OA Projects.

10. Do you have any previous connection to South Providence community? I do not.

11. What is your favorite part of the Providence (Providence College) Community? My favorite part about the Providence College community would probably be the sense of pride at any of the basketball games. There’s a feeling of togetherness at the games that is much stronger than anywhere else on campus.

12. What did you want to be when you grew up when you were your buddy’s age? I think I wanted to be Harriet the Spy.

13. Did you ever take any art classes when you were younger? Only in school, but last summer I took a ceramics class.

14. Was there art in your school? There were many art classes offered at the schools I attended. The art program at my high-school was the smallest program out of the others and was also the most looked down upon. In my own opinion it was the best taught out of the whole school.

15. What is the place of art in a community? I believe art allows for an expression that may not necessarily be as easily accepted. It also allows for a message to be portrayed in a peaceful and lasting manner.

16. What is the place of art, specifically in your own community? In my own community art and its effect is very minimal. Besides at the schools there are very few ways that art can be expressed. There are no museums or programs such as CityArts where art can serve as such an amazing way of education.
