Back in art classes

as I have not been able to find any teaching jobs, I am back into art classes at Fullerton College. I’m working on my fundamentals I didn’t take during my BFA, namely all the technical stuff such as perspective classes. I’m already learning a lot!

I also decided to take two fun classes: storyboarding and advanced painting, because I love telling stories and I love painting!

Feels great to be back at it again.

cioccolata calda in torino

marissadrinkingchocolateintorino

When I visited Torino, I had a chance to have the best hot chocolate in the world. I dream of this hot chocolate, because it is not like the Swiss Miss stuff we have in America (that barely qualifies as hot chocolate). This hot chocolate known as cioccolata calda(or cioccolata in tazza) is a sort of thick, creamy chocolate as if one had melted a chocolate bar into a cute little cup. Genius! I recommend anyone visiting Torino to try this decadent treat!

Florence. Sept 4th, 2011 7:09pm

Today I got caught in the rain.  The previous days have been sweltering so I assumed I would have more sunshine.  I have been sick for the last few days as well.  Today I was feeling slightly better so I decided to go out to look at some shops.  Only, instead of sunshine, I was caught in the rain without an umbrella.  A sengalese man was walking around the streets selling umbrellas.  He came up to me and asked “L’ombrello?”  and I asked “Quanto costo? How much?”  “5 Euro.”  At this point it was a torrential downpour and I needed that umbrella.  It was pretty crazy.
