In Interior Design Fundamentals we will be designing (and building!) a birdhouse and a lamp, among other things. This is better than I expected - I thought at most we would be learning concepts and applying them through drawings, paintings and collages. The Do-It-Yourselfer in me is happy that I'll get to bring my designs to life! As soon as the instructor mentioned these upcoming assignments, ideas started racing around in my head. My dad used to make beautiful birdhouses, I hope to find out that his talent in this area was passed on to me.
I was worried about Perspective Drawing prior to the first class - I was expecting it to be a lot of free-hand sketching and I can barely draw a decent stick figure. But so far it looks like I'll be okay, the first assignment involves math and rules and formulas, measured and scaled grids, and even though I'm less mathematical than I am artistic, it's somehow easier for me to learn something when there is solid structure to how it is done. But no matter how easy or how difficult these courses are, I'm sure I'll do just fine - I ended up getting A+ in both of the courses I just finished! All that time spent doing homework really paid off.
