For those of you artists out there, you would probably have enjoyed my first day of design class.
Besides the usual things like introducing ourselves, going over the syllabus and schedule, the best part was going over the supply list! I have never had an art class before so most of the supplies were new to me. I went shopping today for a Bristol pad, 2H and B and 2B pencils, a kneaded eraser, Sharpies (I know what those are!), tech pens, a plastic E ruler, a right-angled square, a T-square, French curves, a circle template, and the list goes on.
I didn’t start out the first class on the right foot, though. I left work one hour before class started, thinking that would be enough time to travel about 18 miles to class. One hour and ten minutes later, I was walking into class, ten minutes late! Luckily, my teacher was very understanding of the nasty traffic, especially during that snowy rush-hour. Whew, I hope the snow holds off another day so I’m not late again. Now if I could just figure out how to use all these supplies.
