Fun Group Drawing Assignment

My drawing teacher gave us a fun and interesting drawing assignment. It was to be completed in class. She went around and gave each one of us a square. We were to draw what was on the square to scale on a much bigger paper. Some things you couldn't even tell what they were and others you could. We ended up doing two different ones and here are the results.

My drawing is the last one on the right at the bottom row. It is interesting to see how it all came together. This one is my favorite of the two.

This second one was more interesting. It did not fit well together as the other one did. We all wondered why it was. The first one was a painting and this one was a picture of two people a man and a woman from a magazine. We seemed to have a harder time on this one for some reason. My drawing on this one is on the second to bottom row the last drawing on the right(5th drawing from the left) if that makes more sense.

It was fun and even better to see everything come together to reveal the big picture which we did not know how it looked beforehand.

Painting and Drawing Classes

This semester I am taking a painting and a drawing class. I was intimidated at first about the painting class because I've done little of it. I went to class today and after sitting there listening to the syllabus I was put at ease. It did not seem as intimidating as I had previously thought.

I like the first out of class assignment that we have for my drawing class. We have to do twenty drawings with the same theme. Now I just have to think of what exactly I want to draw. I think this is a fun assignment and I am planning on documenting my progress with that. When I get my first one done I will post it here.

Well school starts tomorrow for me. I can honestly say I am not looking forward to it this time. One month did not seem like enough of a break for me. The more I think about it the more intimidated I am by how many classes I am taking. I am taking 6 classes I am tired of school and just want to take as much as possible so I finish faster. This means sacrificing a lot of my free time. It will be worth it in the end. So here's hoping I do well this semester like I did last time.

Books and Stuff

I finished a book I had started reading before fall semester started. I finished this the first week of my break. It's called Starting Out in the Evening it's by Brian Morton. I did not have much left and after a while of not having read it I thought I would not remember anything but it all came back to me. The ending disappointed me as do many endings in the books. I just never want some to end. I usually want to know what happens next. I get very involved as was the case with this book.

You know that saying never judge a book by its cover? Well it is true but I do it anyway. The book has to have an interesting cover or title for it to grab my attention. I think it is very crucial for me. Once it has my attention I pick it up and read the summary if I'm not satisfied with that I end up reading a couple of the first pages. Many good books have found their way to me like that. Like the current book I am reading, Midnight Birds. I bought it at the book sale the library on campus was having. A good looking book, smells old, and seems full of promise. I will have to get a picture of it so I can post it.

I have a few other books that I "plan" on reading. We will see if I get to them all. I do not have that many but one is big and a hard read.

Now as for the stuff I have going on besides the books I am organizing things in my room. I have moved furniture around and I'm thinking about doing it again. I have a lot of cleaning to do. Organizing my closet etc. That is always fun (not). It is something that must get done because when school comes around I will feel like doing it even less. Fingers crossed that I get into gear and finish my cleaning.

Oh one more thing that I wanted to mention. I have been thinking for a while about starting another blog. That does not mean I am going to stop this one but the other one is going to be different from this. I will not say what it will be about because I'm not sure if I will or will not do it yet.

You all have an excellent day!
