Dear Diary, Local community galleries offer lots of courses. I often take courses not so that I will get really good at something but so that I will experience something new. I like to learn, and play with crafts and ideas, and art. This summer I took a print making course and a photography course at the gallery and both were really good. I think it is good for your creativity to be a beginner again, to learn something fresh. It keeps us from relying on our old tricks and makes us search for new ways.
