Art 9: Drawing and Painting Class at LBCC (Spring 2012)

LBCC (Liberal Arts Campus)

It has been fifty-five years since I last had an art class, however, that will all change in January 2012 as I have enrolled at LBCC (Long Beach City College) for the Spring semester. Among the classes scheduled is the aforementioned art class (in fact, I write of that long ago art class of Miss Lahey's in Chapter 2). I do remember that I very much enjoyed the clay medium, that is,  once a few bugs were worked out! I will post regularly the progress of projects forthcoming. I am looking forward to this all-day Saturday affair.
