And so it begins…

A big box of tricks arrives, all wrapped up in red tissue paper.  My course materials are here and, after what feels like a very long wait, I can begin my degree with the Open College of the Arts!  I’m starting with Drawing 1.

I’m so excited about this course – I’ve wanted to do something of this kind for so many years.  Ever since I left school, really.  Between circumstance and lack of confidence, there was always a reason not to do it, though.  Until now.  Hopefully the confidence will grow, in time. At least I’ll be doing something I love!
