The HVAC system at the art school has been on the blink for the last few months. I go there for a painting class every week, and so whenever there is an issue with the heating and cooling system, it is very noticeable. A couple of weeks ago, before the weather started cooling down, I noticed that the air conditioning system was not working correctly. Normally that would not be a big deal, but the painting classes are always held in the same room as the kiln for the ceramics class. Whenever they have the kiln up and running, that room gets to be so hot that you would not believe it. I think the temperature in that room was probably in the high 80s on that particular day. I remember walking in and it felt like I was actually walking into a furnace. Normally, that would not have been a big deal at all but that’s because they always turn the air conditioning system on during the painting class period however, on that particular day, the air conditioning system wasn’t working and so we all felt like we were gonna melt the whole time that we were trying to paint. It was so warm in there that the paint would not even dry. It stayed liquid! That was really weird. Anyway, now the air conditioning is fixed but we are having trouble with the heating system! If all of the classes could be held in the ceramics room, that wouldn’t be a big deal, I guess. They could just turn the kiln on and use it as a heating system.
