Friday was the last day of class, which means that the year is almost over…?! The year really went by in two blinks of an eye.
We’re currently preparing for the annual art show, and had a wonderful drawing session with our model (and complimentary fire ants) in the courtyard outside. We attracted several curious stares (people seem to forget that the building, Mattin Center, is just made from normal, two-way glass, and we most definitely could notice the staring when they walked inside the building and ogled at us by the window). I can only imagine that must have been a weird scene, with a dozen students hauling massive art boards, sitting on stone steps, all circling and squinting at a girl (in the process of being burnt by the sun) who was wearing a scarf that, literally, dazzled. Honestly, it’s the most confusing scarf I’ve ever laid eyes on, and I’ve seen many scarves. Midway through the session, I think everyone started realizing that the random squiggles on the scarf were actual shapes. Like fish.
The complimentary fire ants also provided complimentary ink as they became squished under our fingertips on our drawing boards. One poor student was traumatized.
This has been the best art class I’ve taken so far. I’ll miss it incredibly.
