Art Class

Today I started a new art class. I loved our stained glass window class, but I have a pathological fear of anything that requires me to draw or create real art. Crafts I'm good at. I'm very creative and can do very well on crafts. But actual art? Scares me to death. Seriously. I've practically had anxiety attacks over having to produce art.

So my awesome stained glass instructor recommended another art teacher at Fullerton College--the community college where we took our class and where Kevin's currently sitting in a German class. My teacher strongly recommended "Basic Design" as a place to start in getting over my art-phobia, and she also highly recommended a particular teacher who, rumor has, is planning to retire after this semester.

The problem, really, is that the class meets at 8 am on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I made it okay today. But we'll see what happens. The class is 3 hours long. For the rest of this month you don't need a parking permit to park at the school. Believe me, this is the world's biggest pain in the ass. I literally drove around for 1/2 an hour this morning looking for a spot. I cruised every single student lot there was and all of the side streets as well. It was insane. I finally had to turn around and go home to have Kevin drive me back and drop me off. Luckily we live only a couple of miles away, but that still put me 45 minutes late for class. I was mortified.

But anyway, the class looks interesting. I'm not sure I grasp exactly what we're going to be doing in the class this semester, but I do think I'll be learning a lot. Still, I'm working myself up again about that not-being-able-to-draw thing. *sigh* Hopefully this class will help!
