Wow! It’s hard to believe that I have been blogging for a little while now. I love being able to express myself in this way. And I must admit, it is fun to watch your number of readers climb. So today, I wanted to share a secret with all of my readers. My last blog talked about my love of art and I then realized how much I enjoyed painting and drawing. So, I took a leap and signed up an art class.
Believe it or not, but I have never attempted to do any type of Chinese art. And while Hong Kong is not technically Chinese, there is a lot of influence here from the Chinese culture, so I feel that I may pick up on some of these art forms.
My art class is at a local school here that would be similar to a community college or post secondary school. I am a bit nervous about taking an art class in this type of setting. I wonder if those taking this type of class of artistically gifted. Will they laugh at my abilities? Will they be offended that a European is trying to do Chinese art? These are a few of the things that I am wondering. But I guess that I will find out soon enough.
For those wondering, my classes begin in just a couple weeks. I go two nights a week for an hour each class. Maybe if I am happy with my work, I will share it with you all. But for now, wish me luck that I don’t embarrass myself.
