I registered today for two classes–no, no, no–not for a Master’s degree path so calm down.
These two are just some community level, online courses focused on writing and art.
I used to be really artsy-craftsy until my arthritis stopped much of the hand work I loved to do. I’ve often thought about painting and that scares me as I don’t think I have any ability in that arena. I am much more of a fabric arts person and an events type person, whatever that may mean.
The art course is a beginners drawing class. I think that’s a bit safer than jumping into painting and will give me an idea if I can even manage to put an image on paper that vaguely resembles anything in reality.
I suppose abstraction is always a possibility…or maybe following in Pollock’s footsteps flinging paint on a canvas, but I think I’ll start small and work up. Anyway, the drawing class doesn’t start until June.
I also registered for a poetry class. Again nothing major, just simply covering the basics of poetry writing. I have never been one for formal measured stanzas, rhyme, meter and such. If I can write in an open style and convey meaning then I’m happy so I hope to get some pointers when this one begins in May.
I am coming to a decision on that little (large?) dilemma I mentioned in my last post and I will share before long.
Here’s to self-expression in whatever form…
