An Art Course, again

Last week, I started my third semester. I'm back to Art School. Evening classes are almost empty. Only three student for the first level, two for the second and guess what???
I’m the only student in level three.

It was fun to take these classes. I signed for painting and there were other classes that I had to take, sculpturing, ceramic, history of art.

I liked all the classes and I liked sculpturing the most. But I had to choose Painting as a major because it's what I originally signed for and it's easy to get the tools but other majors I have to buy the clay, which is not available everywhere.

I'm taking:
8 hours per week Painting
3 h.p.w Sculpturing
3 h.p.w Ceramic
1 h.p.w History of Art

Here is my first exercise in drawing. That was October 2005. I'll post other works soon. It's just to give an idea about my work.

You are certainly a much better artist than me! In your drawing, you seem to have a good command of light and shadow. I look forward to seeing more of your works of art! :)

I have always been a fan of surrealistic painters. Two of my favorites are Salvador Dali and M.C. Escher. However, I like finely detailed realistic art as well. When I was in High School, I very much enjoyed a trip to Italy with my Latin teacher and some of my classmates. We saw some really amazing works of art there. I was just stunned by the sculptures and paintings of Michaelangelo! I also really liked the works of many other famous Italian artists who you are probably learning about (and whose names I have forgotten). :)

Attawie, I'm just wondering how you are trying to upload your pictures? Are you using the Picassa2 and Hello programs or just Blogger? I have never been able to get Blogger to work right for this function, so I have always used the other programs, which are available for free download.

David,
I'm trying to up load the pictures with three programs other than blogger and all of them are not working. Last time I was chatting with Morbido, we tried for two hours and nothing was working. It's the connection not the programs.
wish me luck

I only took one art course in my uni, and it did improve my skills alot, I wish if I could have taken more, I would have then drawn faces much better.

But honestly, you have a true talent ;)
