posted message: Hi, I am chewing my way through the essays, but they seem kind of heavy. Is anyone else finding this to be the case? Maybe if I had a sense of the task that would be coming I would have a better sense of what I am reading for? Any ideas?
posted message: Hello! I retired last year after 30 years in el ed. I had studied to be an art teacher, but never did it. When I saw this course with a group working together, I thought that this might be a good opportunity to get my feet wet with online learning. I studied five semesters of art history - but it's a little hazy at this point - especially baroque art. I am also an artist. I focus on contemporary sculpture, made with repurposed/reused/recycled materials. I have always told my students that "Learning is the best fun there is!" I am looking forward to having fun with all of you. Personal data: I live in Kalamazoo, MI. I work part time as an information specialist at the airport. I look forward to meeting the rest of you!
