Fall Term Classes
I registered for my Fall Term classes. I wanted to take ILL 381: Wildlife Illustration but I procrastinated to long and now its full. :c Ill have to snag it next term! Instead I’m taking ILL_385_OL: Children’s Book Illustration 1. Should be fun! The required textbooks are; Where the Wild Things Are, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Mother Goose, and The Cat in the Hat. Got to love that. ^^ I also wanted to take LA 462: Power of Myth and Symbol but I didn’t meet the prerequisites so I’m stuck with history again.
