I originally thought that I could kill two birds with one stone and maybe meet some fun and nice people, but as it turns out, I think I (and maybe a 35 year old woman I sat next to) are the only people under 50 in the class. Maybe there was a special senior citizens discount?? Regardless, I went with an open mind and quite liked it. We started off by learning to mix different oil colors - from primary colors to make the secondary ones - as well as how white changes the colors drastically. We painted our own color wheels and I can honestly say mine wasn't the worst! So that's a good start no?
When the teacher went through the laundry list of supplies we need to buy, I realized that not only will this class serve as a fun hobby on Thursday afternoons, but also as a way to expand my Spanish vocabulary. Art techniques and tools are not really words you learn often. And to think that I considered taking this class in Basque HAHA!
