Following the tour of the facility, I headed off to my first class. I had taken a risk here, as I did not know much about the classes and how they worked. I kinda sorta thought they’d be in a general classroom environment – you know, 20 people or so attempting to see what the teacher was up to.
As soon as I saw them appear in the Asylum Online store, however, I signed up for the ones I wanted based on a less-than-scientific approach – where was my painting weak, and which sculptors and painters did I recognize (which then bumped my first choices!). I ended up with 7 classes at $20 USD a pop. They were also scattered all over the calendar, with classes on the first day and the last few hours of the last day, meaning a hotel stay of three nights. I took the plunge, nonetheless, and on the second day, I even added another class!
I was pleasantly surprised to find (once I arrived at my first class) that there were five of us and the instructor, sitting around a table with a carousel full of Reaper Master Series paints (MSP)!
Cool... we were off to a good start!
But who's this Genet guy?!?! And what's wrong with his head!?!?!
