Artsy Fartsy

I had art class all day today. I'm starting to wonder if this was a good class to pick for my schedule. It's art class or Shakespeare....I think I'll go with art. This morning we met for our drawing class at the V&A Museum, where I had to do two 15 minute sketches, and one 30 minute sketch of some Medieval Casts. Maybe I'm confused, but I didn't know that drawing straight for that long without being able to lift your pencil, or look at your paper (I could only look at my subject), was art - but it is. Although a little frustrating, this class is going to be fun. Next week class is held in the Tate Modern, that should be awesome.

In between lunch I went on a hunt for drawing pens. I stumbled upon a store called Muji's where I found all my art supplies. I made it back just in time for my conceptual drawing class - which will be hard. My first assignment is to create some sort of art piece in a natural setting somewhere in London, using only the supplies in that particular environment. Good luck to me!!!
Because I didn't go anywhere too exciting today outside of class, I just thought to post a picture of all these delicious pastries I see daily. Every single one of them is soo good. Okay, I haven't had them all yet... But I will.

Hopefully we can try them all when Britt and I arrive. Stay happy and warm.

Looks like you're going to rival Britt in the art history department. Good luck with that. Thanks for finding my store.

Oh Adam don't worry... I don't really know what I'm talking about. I just pretend that I do! Say what up to Lloyd.

How many sleeping pictures are we going to get. Tell your friends to get used to it. Especially while traveling. Everyone will be jealous. Night Night
