Interior Materials & Codes
This class is supposed to be about types of building materials and safety codes...but so far, I've learned more about my teacher's political opinions and his days as a Rolling Stones groupie! Maybe he'll get to the point soon!
I'm really enjoying this class! It's considered a studio class and is about 3 hours long, so we do a lot of sketching. Our instructor encourages us to work quickly, so it's like speed decorating! I've already learned a lot and the time spent in the class or doing assignments doesn't feel like a chore...it wonderful to have a creative outlet!
I'm glad this class is another studio and not lecture, since it's at 8am! My instructor is young and new to UNA and has been very kind and patient. This class has a mixture of art students...and then the rest of us! I'm not an "artist" so each class is a brand new learning experience, but I'm really enjoying learning about the different types of mediums and techniques. Don't laugh, but here are the hand sketches I worked on earlier this week:
I used individual vertical strips of paper to create this collage:
Human Growth & Development
I expected this class to be dry and boring, but I'm loving it too! My teacher has a great sense of humor and handles delicate subjects pretty well. So far we've studied conception and the birth process, including watching a birth video! Of course, I cried during the video! Even though the text and video don't mention our Creator God, I was in awe at His obvious role in creating life. I ended up having a party in my heart, praising the Lord!
Overall, things are going well! I'm still making friends, getting good use out of my rain boots and listening to more Rick & Bubba than I have in my whole life combined!
Thanks for checking in!
