Basically, for a art class, I need to take pictures of different things ranging, from the arctutecture of a building to a "painting" found in a museum. So, what len(es) do I need?

I already have asked a rep from a lens rental place and they recommended a 50 mm f/1.4 for the museum part. Would this be a good start?

What camera are you using? what lenses do you own now? You could do both of those shoots with an 18-55mm lens (most cameras come with this as a kit lens) and a tripod or flash for when lighting is an issue, if they are allowed of course. Most museums do not allow flashes, but tripods haven't been an issue for me.
