I am -so- right there with you on this one. Soren and I constantly feel like we're having to reinvent the wheel with most of this stuff, since I only took one ceramics class wayyyy back in high school and he's never taken one. Glazes continue to confound us. *sigh*
But y'know, with regard to finding the artistic voice - I'm trying to find my artistic voice too, so I set myself a bit of a study on the issue and from what I'm seeing and reading etc. finding your artistic voice just takes a lot of time and a lot of pieces. You have to just crank out work for a couple of years before an authentic voice emerges. Or in the words of Diego Rivera - you have to work until you have thoroughly exised and purged all the influences of other artists from your soul, and only then can your true voice manifest itself.
So I guess art school has been the ultimate binge/purge in that regard.

That's exactly what I'm talking about. I feel like there's a lot of work ahead of me and when I see someone who makes it look effortless, it can either be discouraging or can remind me to get back to work... depending on my frame of mind.

At this moment, my inclination is to figure out a way to make the program at MassArt work.
