I took a life drawing class at the Art Students' League late last year and wasn't too satisfied with the instruction. However, when I got the 2008-2009 book it said Michael Grimaldi will be teaching a life drawing class there. I am thinking of giving art class another shot and enroll in his class. He is an artist I've gotten into lately and I really like his works I've seen in his official website, such as:
Do you think I should try out the class? I haven't taken that many art classes in my life and haven't had that good of an experience with the few ones I've taken. Also, I wonder if I should study up on the art concepts such as perspective, lighting, and some anatomy before I attempt such a class again. At the previous class I took at the ASL, everyone seemed leagues ahead of me. Another factor to consider is that if I take the class, I wont be able to get a job or do volunteer work (since afterwards I wouldn't have enough time before my Taxation class in the evenings), and I desperately need things to put on my resume.
