CMU-Q anthology celebrates creativity, artistic talent
The student-led Photography Club at CMU-Q published the second edition of Carnegie Mellon University Qatar Creates, an anthology of creative work by students, faculty and staff members.
While CMU-Q’s main programs of study are in the areas of business, science and technology, the students organize events and competitions to explore their artistic sides. In the 2018-19 academic year, students organized clubs for photography, art, music, acting, design, dance and filmmaking.
The book showcases paintings, photographs, drawings and creative writing submitted by more than 30 members of the CMU-Q community. The artwork was compiled by Maryam Al-Darwish and Haya Al-Kuwari who lead the Photography Club, with guidance from club advisor and chemistry instructor Kevin Hunter.
“An anthology like this opens up conversations about art, and it shows that our students have talents and interests outside of their main areas of study,” said Hunter.
We are proud of the students who took time out of their busy schedule to submit their piece of art to us so we can share it with the community,” said Al-Darwish and Al-Kuwari.
Clubs are an important part of the university experience, providing a way for students to develop new interests and cultivate skills in leadership and organization. Each year, CMU-Q students lead more than 30 clubs that cover a wide variety of special interests. Learn more about student clubs at CMU-Q.
