George’s Artistic Adventure: Prologue

My ceramics lesson in August.

It’s the start of fall classes at The Art League School this week, and I’m going back to school, too.

My name is George, and I do the blogging here at The Art League. I’m going to be sharing my tentative steps into my first art classes in many years — I’m finally learning to draw! — in the hopes that others will be inspired to try something new, too. I already blogged about trying my hand at the potter’s wheel. This fall I’m taking Basic Drawing with George Tkabladze and Stained Glass with Jimmy Powers.

So, I’ve just popped into The Art League Store this afternoon to pick up my supplies for my first drawing class tomorrow morning. David helped me pick out what I needed — some graphite pencils, erasers, a pencil sharpener, drawing paper and a drawing board. We’ll see what I can turn it into!

As I take these two classes for the next few weeks, I’ll be blogging away, trying to answer questions including: what’s it like to be a newbie in an Art League class? Do I have any artistic talent? And how’s that glass get stained, anyway?

Watch this space for updates as I fill you in on how I’m doing.
