This article appeared in a Las Vegas newspaper talking about Forest Park in St. Louis. Forest Park is located in the center of the St. Louis city limits-sort of like Central Park in NYC.
Compare the amenities mentioned in the article with Golden Gate Park, and compare the prices for admission between Golden Gate Park attractions and Forest Park.
And then, to round out your understanding, realize that St. Louis was settled by disenfranchised Europeans that were shut out of cultural institutions that were only offered to the wealthy elite.

What is the difference of study course between A levels in Fine Art and A levels in Textiles?
The teacher wants me to do Art and design (Textile) instead of the course that I want which is Art and Design (Fine Art) because my portfolio shows skills with textiles more than drawing skills.. But I'm not convinced because I don't want to learn about Textiles and types of textiles.. I want to learn about colours, tones and how to make expressive paintings using other materials like wool for example but don't want textiles to be the focus in all of my work.. I've done the assignment that she asked from me which is sketching fruit. I haven't shown it to her yet..
What do you think…
Textiles is specific to the learning of textile media...weaving, hand made paper, felting, dying materials (fleece, natural plant fibers, fabric). A new artist always needs to learn about drawing, painting, sketching for other art classes, which is the base of printmaking, painting, etc. Fine Art would be the class to start with, especially if you, yourself do not want to do textiles. That's a personal choice of YOURS. 'Hope this helps.
