What students are saying
“Prof Oswald’s overall knowledge of the subject certainly makes class enjoyable, but her personality and omniscient artistic knowledge (physical and digital) makes her unique in an entirely positive manner. The care she puts into her job is clear throughout every class, and her ability to help students and make time for them is unmatched. She’s fantastic!”
