So I had my first summer school class today and sat beside me appeared to be a fellow artist. She was reading a sewing book which caught my attention and then halfway through the class she whipped out her sketchbook and started drawing an amazing picture.
I really want to become friends with her but I'm really socially awkward. I came to that realization in class when strangers all started mingling and I sat there quiet by myself. I tried to start up a conversation with her after class by asking if I could see her book and asking where she got it. She seemed friendly and talked about how the library has a ton of books like that.
I just keep thinking about how awesome it would be to become friends with a real artist. All my friends like painting and like crafting and stuff but none of them are the type of peopel to sit down and paint for hours. I mean for all I know she might not be like that either but I do know none of my friends have sketchbooks with drawing pencils.
It seems obvious: just talk to her. But I'm actually really nervous to lol. I've started up conversations with people in my classes before but none of them actually turned into friendships. Also she looks significantly better at drawing than I am, which isn't a problem for me but what if she doesn't think I'm very good at art?
Aah. I'm being silly. What would you guys do to strike up a friendship?
