    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.

    Thanks for the replies though.

    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.

    http://www.artrenewal.org/asp/databa...rder=ascending

    And once the classes start, post an update on how they're going and how you like the ones you signed up for.


    -Nick

    Hey Winjer,
    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

    best of luck - see you around!

    the crowd is slightly younger on saturdays, but yea lots of older people at the ASL

    the older crowd is so experienced and full of knowledge though - can learn a lot from them

    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.

    BTW- I am an old cuss, 32 years!
