Not Enough People

Last Friday I signed up for a watercolor class at the Edina Art Center. It was a six session class every Monday from 1:00 PM to 3:30 PM starting today. I scheduled a ride to pick me up and got there about an hour early. Right before the class, I went to the classroom to wait for it to begin. I asked the woman that was in the classroom if this was the watercolor class starting at one o'clock. She had this look on her face and she said that she'd just finished a class. She also told me that the one o'clock class was canceled because not enough people signed up. Turns out only two people had signed up for the class (me included) so they canceled it. Only they forgot to call me to let me know so I showed up.

The teacher of the class was super nice. She said she could call a few people from the earlier class to try to form the afternoon class. I told her it wasn't a big deal. She insisted on having me in her class. She told me she's going to call me tonight to let me know if there's going to be a class. I was really excited to be in this class but what can you do. Things happen. I just hope she can find a few people to form a class so that I can go next week. If not, there is another Art Center closer with a watercolor class starting Thursday that I could probably sign up for.

That's disappointing. I always hate it when that happens, for both school and fun stuff. I hope it works out.

A girlfriend of mine told me about an art program for people with disabilities she used to work at. I am going to find the name and let you know---should be cool :)
