So, this week I started an evening class at the Glasgow School of Art, a fine institution and a major part of Glasgow’s education scene. I decided to enrol in an acrylic painting class to really get to grips with some painting basics, and help me develop not just as a painter but as an artist in general.

It looks like it’s going to be a pretty awesome course! A professional artist coaches us, and we’re allowed to paint pretty much anything we want – he comes around periodically and gives us advice. I’ve already picked up a couple of tips that I’m going to practice this weekend, which I’m looking forward to.

I’m  particularly enjoying the building that our classes are held in – since the art school suffered a bit of a blaze earlier on in the year, some of the studio space has relocated to the McLellan Galleries on Sauchiehall street, which is a grand building fit for inspiring art.

I really can’t express accurately in words how excited I am about this course. Which I suppose isn’t great, as I do claim to be a writer 😛 But if I paint something I’m particularly pleased with, I’ll be sure to share it with you guys!

Anyway, I’ve got a touch more art to do before hitting the hay, so have a good weekend everyone, and I’ll catch you on Monday!
