Hi! My name is Megan Thompson and I’m from Evergreen, Colorado. I am 16 and will be a junior in high school this upcoming semester. Other than focusing on art I ski and play tennis in my free time. I want to pursue something with art or design in college. Advertising and communication design are my favorite areas right now, but I also love graphic design and fashion. My favorite fine art is painting, which I would love to continue to use for projects with design in the future. When looking for summer programs I felt that the Parsons pre-college program was such a unique opportunity to grow and learn about myself as a future designer, and I am so excited to be taking the Design Studio Course for three weeks. Another interesting aspect of the New School is the location in New York, which is so different from where I currently live. The city provides constant inspiration for ideas and a buzzing atmosphere that I already love.
