Liz and friends,
My computer is in the shop right now, so I am behind. I am snagging a little time on another computer, but I can't monopolize it. I should be "back in the saddle" in a few days.
I don't know if it's because of my lack of art background or what, but I'm finding it hard to keep up with the suggested schedule. Particularly in relation to the essay, I feel like there are aspects of elements of art, design, etc. that I'd like a better grasp of before I attempt an essay. I don't want to feel like I'm rushing through things and not getting a deep enough understanding. Thus, the lack of posts from me over the past week or so. When I get an essay together in the next couple of days, I'll post it.
Thank you for the update, Kevin! And no worries about keeping up with the schedule...Do what's right for you! Also, please note that the essay only needs to be a few paragraphs and is really just a process for you to solidify what you've learned. Post if you like, but don't feel like you have to. Also, please feel free to voice any questions about the materials on this site. That could certainly help get conversation going!
