Im gonna enroll at the art students league for september and just wanted to know if anyone can recommend any teachers in particular. Im planning to take a painting and drawing from life class and a class for anatomy. I would appreciate any advice.
yeah i see why Faragassos is never full. Its at an ungodly hour at night. Id get home at like midnight if I took his class. For now I just signed up for 2 anatomy classes and I guess after this semester of college ill schedule it so I can take Faragassos evening class.
Hey Winjer. I missed this post, but if it's too late maybe you can use this info for later months. The Art Renewal Center has a section on atelier's, and in it there are a bunch of teachers at the Art Students League listed. You can go through their pages to see who's work you like and who you'd like to study with, maybe you even signed up for some of their classes already. I think the Art Students League listings start here and continue on to the next pages. If they don't, just keep looking, it's in this atelier section somewhere.
ok so classes started on monday and im getting into the groove of 6 hours of drawing every day. They really need better chairs in there. If i can find some webspace ill put up my work in a diff thread.
congrats on your enrollment to the ASL
i just recently signed up for an anatomy for artists class with Anthony Polumbo (my first class was this past saturday)
this was a september saturday course, so theres only one left - this coming saturday
it was a great first class for me seeing as ive never really done anything like this before - the class was fairly large - around 20 people , so Anthony only came around to me about twice - but he seemed very knowledgable and talented
i love the ASL though - u get a great feeling when u walk in - so artistic, so much talent around you
As someone who WANTED to go to the Watts Atelier, and was spurred on by this incentive to sign up (this week!) for Faragasso's class, I am super-happy and scared that I did. What's funny is that I find this thread, and the recommendations for Faragasso, though I knew about him for a while. Get your hands on a copy of his Student Guide to Painting, out of print-- but a fantastic book on the Reilly method.
Right now, I am an absolutely HORRIBLE painter, but I know I need to focus, focus, focus-- and knowing you're in the right place is a good thing.
