What I've been up to (if you're wondering) is a new continuing education class through George Brown College. Further to my love of all things interior, I made the decision several months ago to embark on a new scholastic enterprise: namely, the Interior Decorating certificate via GBC. Last night I completed my third class of my very first course, and is it too soon to say I love it? I thought not.
I LOVE IT.
My reasons for opting to take an elective course first are threefold:
- I work currently in finance and while banking is many things, it is not generally a very "creative" field. I wanted to get my feet wet in something that stimulated my senses before tackling harder subjects that involve more dry material, like math and whatnot
- I'm a history nerd, and I'm pretty sure the love I'm developing for the art world will be everlasting, so a course called "Art History for Interior Decorators" just sang to me
- It was available on the day I needed it to be, and fit in with my (and hubby's, and kids') schedule

I of course will keep you updated as to my progress, and of any interesting tidbits that arise over the course of program. And if you have any favourites to share with me - either artists or works - I'd love to hear about them!
