At 13, I decided on art lessons, so Mom took me to the Art Students League and signed me up. She took me to look in on a class. This was all new to me. As we stood by the wall, a man wheeled a real skeleton past me - what a fright! The students came back from the break. A woman got up on the platform, lifted the dashiki over her head and was completely nude. What a shock! I had NO idea what an art class was. I attended the Saturday morning kidsí classes; it was a great experience.
