Will dropping a fine arts class look bad for college admissions?
Answered

I am taking a fine arts class this year, Jewelry and Metals, and I really only took it for fun. However, after these first few days, I am not sure if it is really going to be all that enjoyable. In fact, I think it's going to have a somewhat strenuous workload. I really just wanted to have a break in the day as I am upping my class difficulty in many areas and I am adding sports to every single day (and even some mornings) as well. I am worried about not getting enough sleep and how I will manage my time. I have already completed double the amount of fine arts credits necessary to graduate, so I really do not need to take this class. Of course I will not drop it immediately, as school started only four days ago, but if it proves to be too much of a stressor, would it look bad to colleges if I dropped it for a study hall?

Not at all. As long as you have all of the fine arts credits you need, dropping any unneeded courses will not affect you or how it looks. If you were to drop your core classes, like Math and Science, that would be a different story.
