Orthographic projection with the movement of a snake is harder than the hand drill i’ve been working with for a week now, this kinda sucks. I just wanna sleep, but I’m not sleeping until I finish the drawing and the model and my roommate comes back with the kids that are apparently staying over cause I’m not sleeping with people I’ve never met before in the room. I’m so stressed right now its nuts, I should have slept over my friends in 610 but I didn’t and I’m kinda regretting it.
but I don’t even know how to draw a snake in motion. nothing stays stationary so its wicked hard to do and I don’t really want to it all. Not to mention my roommate is going to a concert tonight and he is having people sleep over, which I can only imagine how late they are going to be here till. He’s going home for the weekend though, so I may just stay here all weekend and have a quiet weekend consisting of reading and wandering the South End, Back Bay, and Beacon Hill, looking at houses and maybe take the commuter rail to the northern coast and see Salem or Rockport or something. Yes, all alone, I like to have time to see things alone haha I’m weird I know, but whatever.
Hello! I was looking through the Wentworth tag (not much there, haha) and was saw that you go there and you're in the architecture program. I was wondering how it is? I'm looking to get my b,arch and had been looking at wentworth. I think I'll apply next year but was just curious what your thoughts on the school were? Thanks :)
Since this is my first year and I have not really done too much in the world of architecture except being a fan of it in the past this is my first immersion any architecture program. Heres what I have to say about the school right now.
As a whole I have been having a great time. I’ve met great people and all my teachers have been pretty good, my classes except for my architecture class aren’t wicked hard, but they are what I feel is good for me. Also opposed to some of the professors that my friends have for their general classes like english and math I have had great professors that actually go well out of their way to help. The school as a whole isn’t bad at all, its just a small school, I really haven’t been to active in the school community but you definately can be, alot of kids on my floor play sports and are in some sort of club, but it takes me a while to branch out, but I am working on it.
As for the architecture department, its alot of work and right now i have nothing really negative to say about it. It has a lecture that is part history and drawing techniques twice a week, and it has two professors. That class has approximately 120 kids in it. That shocked me at first, but then after a while I realized that the lecture does not need to be a one on one type of class. Then for three hours twice a week I have my design principles class. That class is a class of 20 kids and one professor plus a student aid who is in the masters program. This class is much more personal, where my professor either goes around and you get one on one time discussing the recent projects that you are working on or you have a class review and present your work to get critiqued in front of the class. Also in this class are trips to local landmarks to implement drawing techniques. Recently we went to the Museum of Fine Arts to draw using line weight, depth, and shading techniques.
What I really like is that they start the program off teaching as if you know nothing, which I liked because I had very little art experience and now I am pretty much caught up with the skills that some kids had already, actually I’m finishing a drawing of something that I could have never drawn before I started here, so if you want to major in architecture and don’t have the best skills they will get you caught up and you will not be left behind as opposed to schools that assume you have skills. That is not to say that the course isn’t as hard as other places. It is a ton of work and right off the bat be prepared for work is something I learned, while my friends are off having fun I’m in my dorm working on a project that I need to finish and is going to take hours to complete, so its alot of work.
So overall I am having a good time, the courses keep me busy, have taught me things and I think that its a pretty good school for architecture. And just to warn you the first semester is all hand drawing and you don’t touch a CAD program I guess, and that surprises many people.
Sorry this is wicked long, I had alot to say I guess haha.
I would like to know where they get these numbers cause 18,000,000 people visiting Quincy Market seems like ALOT of people, and considering the Boston Tourism website says that 20,000,000 people visited the city that means almost all of them visited Quincy Market? Well… I guess then, still though? More than the Magic Kingdom?
