After a couple of minutes, they pulled the pottery from the trashcans and placed them in a rubber trashcan full of water to cool them off.
Then we fished them out of the water to oooh and awww over them.
This is my first completed pottery piece of my MSU college career!

For my Early American Art History class exam, the teacher will show slides, and we must identify the work, artist, and write a little something about the work. She's given us about two dozen slides to study. I took pictures of them, so I can look them up at home. Here is a sample picture. Who uses slides anymore? The slides themselves are historic.

Before I can take all the really cool, interesting art classes here at Midwestern, I have to take some beginning, prerequisite classes - Drawing I and 2D Design this semester. The teacher for Drawing I is very laid back and relaxed. Last class, she taught us different shading techniques. Our homework for the weekend was to draw 3 eggs using ribbon shading, squiggly line shading, and cross-hatching.
My 2D Design class is a little more intense. We just turned in our first big project on Tuesday. The instructor had us each hang our work on the wall and then stand there beside it for a class critique. The students were all very tactful, but they all had a little something to say. I was the last student to be critiqued. Standing up there with my art work felt like standing in a lineup naked.
