Class starts at exactly 9:29. 10 seconds late is still late, and if you need to go to the bathroom or grab our Monday snack, do so before 9:29. Beverages are technically not allowed, but I look the other way as long as you keep them in your backpack or under your desk. Keep up your excellent level of discussionwell done!
Bring anything you have that could possibly be used for art. Ex: scisssors, glue, makers, paint (with newspaper to cover tables and floor), magazines/newspapers to cut up, etc. The more, the merrier! Who are your favorite poets?
The artist, like the God of creation, remains within or behind or beyond or above his handiwork, invisible, refined out of existence, indifferent, paring his fingernails. --James Joyce
The supreme question about a work of art is, out of how deep a vision of life does it spring? --James Joyce
Time drops in decay, Like a candle burnt out, And the mountains and woods Have their day, have their day; --Yeats
