I know, which is why I'm 41 and I haven't done it yet. In fact, it'll probably take me longer, on account of I'm not always able to get my hands to do precisely what I wanted them to do in the first place.

On the other hand, I'm not looking to be Renoir by December, I'm just... looking for the entrance ramp. I could sit and make random marks on paper as the whim takes me for the next 20 years or so and that wouldn't get me anywhere at all. Best-case, the class at least provides a strategy. :)

I dunno. I might not do it. Bureaucratic necessity* or not, it's a lot of money for something like that. If I had thought of it three years ago, I could've gone for an art/graphic design minor, which would be a handy thing to have, but it's too late to start that now.

* The classes I need to finish my degree only amount to 10 credits, which is two short of full-time. Because of the way financial aid works, I need to spend the money for another three credits' worth of something - well, technically two, but there are no two-credit courses - or my award package gets cut in about half, which is a lot more than three credits' worth of cash and may leave me unable to pay for the whole semester's gas, which sort of defeats the purpose when you commute 140 miles a day.
