I went to the IDEA center for recommendations for art history textbooks I can read on my own. The tutor/art-history-teacher was actually very impressed that I wanted to/was wiling to do extra work like that. That’s always nice.
I just can’t seem to find time to read that stuff. I’m so tired from regular projects! In fact, I can barely find time to finish my projects. So it’s just..maybe I should just purchase the books and read them over the break (we have a 2 week break coming up).
I’m not allowed to study art history as a class at my college unless I do a new contract and pay for the extra class (it’s a lot more complicated than a regular university). So my choices are to go to another school like a community college or just study on my own. I just realized that it is definitely not going to work out if I take a class somewhere else because I won’t be able to do it until fall semester (schedule conflicts). Unfortunately, I don’t want to go so long without any knowledge of art history…so I might just pick up a few reference books and start reading on my own. That’s the tougher option. :(
