    I signed up for an art exploration class that meets at one of the art museums here. It’s in an old mansion downtown that was built by one of the first prominent citizens of Reno in the 1870′s. I’ve seen the mansion before, but I’ve never been in it. It’s starts 09/18 and goes to 10/23, a six week course that meets on Thursday nights. I’m so excited! Been wanting to learn how to paint and draw and this class is an intro to a lot of different mediums of art.

    how wonderful! i think it is great that you are taking a class. i wish i could draw. i like to watch the guy on pbs when he teaches some art. usually oil. i marvel at his talent and how easy he makes it look. he also try to make it easy for student .

    i say good for you that you are doing this. we all need to try something new.

    Sounds great.  Perfect time of year to start a class..  I took a painting class one time. It was a technique taught by a lady on tv.  Can’t remember her name.  It was fun but I am just a paint by number type of painter..good luck

    Shirley – don’t try to do circles – ovals are more pleasing to the eye.

    Calgal – gladd for you – that should be fun. Will watch for updates. Alma

    That does sound exciting and what a cool place to have the classes in.  I’ll bet it’s beautiful.  We have an art museum 2 miles from my house and I have been in it exactly one time-  how sad is that.  And downtown Pittsburgh’s museums I can’t even remember when I have been there last.

    That sounds like fun!   And so interesting to learn about the different mediums.  I wonder which one will appeal to you the most!   Please keep us informed when you go to each lesson.

    My DD is very good at drawing.  She took art in high school and some water color classes years ago.  But she said she really has to be in the mood to draw.  I don’t think she has done anything with it in recent years.  Too many other things going on in her life, I guess.

    And yes–do show us some of the things that you produce!

    Sounds like a good idea to try.  I bet you will enjoy it and something different for you to do and learn.  It is great for people who want to try something of new learning and a challenge, too.  Good luck with it.

    Taking lessons will give you a good foundation to build on, I watch a lot of the PBS arts programs and pick up some hints from them.  I dabble in the arts but it’s for the Native American crafts that I try to do :-) Enjoy yourself, you’ll meet some interesting people being at the museum.
