I’m putting in effort to do more art related activity.┬áSo far, it’s working out. Mostly because I usually have company.

A few weeks in a row I went to the St. Louis art museum to listen to lectures. I had never thought to do this, but in an art business class I’m taking, one segment mentioned listening to other people talk about their art. This isn’t quite the same, but I’ll take it.

The first was on pop art and I learned a few things and had a fun discussion.The second, which I was really excited for, was about sculpture. I could not pay attention. No fault of the lecturer or museum. That’s okay though. I still got out of the house and looked at some art.

A bit before that, the art museum held a “prom” type event. It was hilarious and we had a blast. I’d highly recommend doing the SLAM prom if they have it again. Much better than my high school prom, that’s for sure. They had free crafts, a scavenger hunt of paintings, a DJ, spiked punch, photographers, the whole shebang. I’ll totally dress up next time.

I didn’t have to leave my house, but another one was finally watching the live action Beauty and the Beast. Yes, that counts. I loved it. It was beautiful. The costumes, the cinematography. Fantastic.

This week, I’m going to see The Little Mermaid at The Muny in Forest Park. I’m so excited. I love The Muny.

Those two were my favorite Disney Princesses. Sleeping Beauty is up there, but I was all about Ariel and Belle. I never really saw Jasmine as a princess in the Disney tradition since the movie was about Aladdin. I loved that one too, though.

I know, this is a rather lackluster description, but I haven’t been keeping notes. I’ll try to get some pictures when I go to The Muny, but I’m not promising anything.
