New Term

This week I started my second term of design school.
Tuesday and Wednesdays are long days, with 8 hours of straight class. Luckily, time flies when you're having fun! Here are the classes that I'm taking:

1. Visual Communications
I'm so excited to learn the proper drawing techniques with my Prismacolor markers, pencil crayons and pastels! This will include material rendering, such as drawing hardwood, marble, glass, metal, etc.
This course will also teach us how to do perspective drawings, which I'm very excited about. Hopefully one day my drawings will be as good as Candice Olson's..who is quite amazing at rendering techniques:

2. Textiles
I'm also looking forward to learning more about the different kinds of fabrics and textiles in my Textile class. I think textiles are what really make the design and add personality to the space, so this will be a fun class!

3. Design Studio 1
In this class, we will be designing a condo for the entire term. I'm really excited to work on the same space for three months!

4. Art History 1
I absolutely adore art history! I took several art history electives during my time at the University of Guelph and fell in love. Art History 1 looks way back, to the earliest forms of art known to civilization. Pretty cool.
 
5. Drafting Standards
Another manual drafting class, a continuation of intro to drafting that I took in term 1.
It's going to be a great term...I can feel it! xo

Eek! Sounds so exciting! I always loved a new term. Buying new pens and pencils and notebooks :) Except you get to play with pretty fabric. Jealousss!

I took basically the same class as your Visual Communication's class... it was tough for me (since I suck at drawing) but loved working with the Prisma Colors. My favorite was brick walls & marble/granite ;)

This brings back so many memories. I still have my Prismacolour markers from 10 years ago and they still work!

This post makes me miss school so much! At the time it was exhausting and stressful, but oh what I would do to go back! ;-) Good luck this semester! xo

Ah, a new semester. Congrats :) These classes seem fun! I'm just taking 'Theory of Coaching' and 'Italian Civilization' to finish off my A.A. degree, but I long for the days when my classes were just related to art.

Hoping I can take some art-related classes next semester as well!

Loooove your blog,
