I'm very proud of myself right now. And this is why:
I went to a free drawing class at the The Drawing Studio, this amazing little place in downtown Tucson. We went from 4:30 to 9 and by the end I learned so much. A former professor from the UA started the studio years ago, and now they offer classes all over on anything from drawing to sculpture work. Our class started with drawing from our mind (i.e. a cat - which was awful) then moved on to drawing the form and adding value (aka shading). Then we got a motivational speech about how drawing helps you see your world more fully. By the end I was so into it. I loved it. Can't wait to do more!
