Art College

Today was my first day at Art College. The lecturer insisted on the importance of that term, as distinct from "university".

This week is to be spent on a large-scale project in small groups. My group are still sketching ideas.

The first art history session was bewildering. The group of about fifty Access students was combined with a whole lot more Foundation students. After a video about online facilities we were given an introduction to some of the topics coming up in the term. The bizarre and endearing lecturer showed us images and film clips (sometimes gruesome) set to David Bowie (a lot of David Bowie), the Velvet Underground and the Pet Shop Boys.

Wednesdays end at lunchtime, so I found the library and then headed home.
