So week one of school is done and so far I think I can handle it, I dropped sculpture at the last minute so now I am taking Drawing 2, photo 2, Issues in Contemporary art, and subversive art.
Issues is an academic course and it's kind of fun to get back to the book learning but I didn't enjoy paying 145.00 for the text book which is basically a glorified photo copy of a bunch of articles, it's huge but it's just binded photocopies!
One thing I love about being a fine arts student we usually don't have to buy textbooks because there aren't any :D My photography text for first year was only $50 and it's an actual book not a photocopy!
I am super excited to get back to school I just love getting to think creatively and I get giddy with excitement at the thought of writing papers is that nerdy or what :)
I spent yesterday in downtown Vancouver at the art gallery checking out WACK the exhibit of feminist art it was pretty cool and a nice way to spend an afternoon alone I kind of enjoyed wandering around. As an added bonus I got to check out the upstairs exhibit of Jeff Wall a photographer from Vancouver that we have discussed in photo class too.
I took a few photos while I was down there too trying to finish a roll so I can get in the darkroom on Wednesday before class. I love the dark room!
Not much else is new I was able to change drum lesson to Fridays so I can keep going to those which is awesome although I am pretty sure I am the slowest learning drummer on earth LOL. I guess it doesn't help that Josh is a bit of a drumming natural and it comes easy to him, never have I felt so white and nerdy as I do when I can't find the beat :D it sucks!
So school is four days a week and I am sure I will be at school most saturdays which means I am saying good bye to my social life....not that I had much of one before but if you don't hear from me and you are expecting to this is why!
