This next photo is of a bulding on the way to class. I just love the way the ivy covers it.
Here is the castle of NIU. Did you know that it is a state law for all public universities in Illinois to have a castle. Sorry about the photo. I was in a rush to get to class. I'll get a better one another day.
Here is the art building at NIU. There is always something going on in this building. When I walked in today I was bombarded with the smell of sawdust and acryllic paint. Art buldings always have a distinctive smell. The smell of the art wing at my high school was a mixture of paint, metal shavings and pencil graphite. A very comforting to smell to all artists!
