A numbers game

pod, originally uploaded by jckirner.

Ah - year end analysis of the time spent in the college coursework.
This harkens back to days in manufacturing when setting time standards for work to be done and for predicting workloads in the future.

So here goes...

Online art history course:
26.5 hours active online over 112 sessions
18 chapters read in text book, 480 pages over 60 hours
2 essays researched and prepared approx. 8 hours
total effort - 94.5 hours across 16 weeks.

Life drawing course:
75 drawings over 16 weeks
Approx 45 hours actual time.

Typical applied weekly effort 8.7 hours

But why did it feel like much more??? Because my mind was actively processing daily for far more than the applied time, and no doubt those forays from all the inspiration consumed mucho time too!

Pic above - these seed pods fall in my yard this time of year. Destined for the dye pot for experiments!!
