For my second semester of college, I was growing tedious of science and mathematics classes. The cosign of whaa?? One morning, my left brain aching after an hour-long session trapped with Dr. Monroe in Calc 101, I happened to wander by the art building. Intrigued, I stepped inside. A cool white hallway greeted me, its walls adorned with paintings and drawings of every subject matter available. It was like entering a mini Metropolitan Museum of Art. The talent of those student artists amazed me. I wanted to produce something like that. Next semester, I got my chance.
When Spring enrollment rolled around, I was the first to sign up for Art 101. See ya Dr. Monroe, time to let out my inner Picasso! While relieved to give my left brain a break as I produced the next Les Demoiselles d’Avignon, I was quickly stunned by the price of the art supplies I needed. I’d already dropped nearly $300 for textbooks, now I had to buy sketch books, paint brushes, and charcoal?!
Unfortunately, at that time, I wasn’t aware of student discounts on art supplies, so I paid full price for the tools of the trade. Truly, I’d become a starving artist. But you, dear student, can take advantage of A.I. Friedman’s 10% discount. A.I. Friedman lets you explore your creative side at a great price! Now you can afford that artist’s residence in a Soho loft.
