It sounds like Kirsten Dunst is shifting her focus from acting to a more low-key pursuit–art school. Taking a break from making movies, Kiki’s decided to enroll in a four-year program.

“Right now I want to go to art school. It’s important to do other things,” Dunst told Evening Echo. “I’m not the type of actress who likes to do movie after movie after movie. It doesn’t feel like you have much of a life. You’re just taking on a new identity in a way.”
