    Well, generally speaking, the prices get a bit cheaper moving out into the boroughs. But if you absolutely must stay in Manhattan for some reason, Harlem's still got some pretty cheap apartments. They're not in particularly...nice places, but they're cheap.

    I'm in the core program at GCA. Rent is extremely expensive in NYC, I'd recommend checking out that site couch surfing: http://www.couchsurfing.org/index.html . I'd offer you a place to stay but I'm going to be elsewhere during the summer between terms.

    hey i hear ya..
    want to go there too for the summer so badly, but money is a big issue for me too (hey, who hasn't got them?)...and if i HAVE the money to go there for like 6 weeks, there is always the 'where do i stay' issue, a hotel isn't going to work...and to sleep on a couch for 6 weeks...what would be best is like, i big group going (like 5/6 people) and to rent a house somewhere in queens or something, not in manhatten...

    anyways, keep us updated on your search!

    Norkagar: if you really want to, you could come to the core program. It's feasible to hold down a job and go to school at the same time. Some people bus tables or work as a waiter, which is perfect because usually the place only needs you on nights and weekends. You could also look at Camie Davis' atelier (Camie was a student at Water Street and a teacher at WS and GCA up until last year, and her teaching is essentially the same to Jacob's methods). I was there the other night; the space is small but cozy, and Camie is an absolutely fantastic teacher. It's also a couple hundred dollars cheaper than GCA per month. That way you could also take night classes at GCA after school, although Camie's teaching is sufficient in itself to get really good.

    I agree that GCA is most likely one of the very best, if not the best, school in the world for working in the classical approach. Don't give up on coming here; the GCA/Guild Atelier community is very tight knit and we're all friends. It's a good place to be.

    I hate this stupid international law crap. We should all be allowed to live where we please. I'm sorry, man.

    I went to GCA for a week intensive.

    I had difficult only in the way of using charcoal and using it properly. The info John DeMartin went over I was already familiar with (I'd researched the technique before hand to become familiar with it internally) so my only issue was being able to produce during the class, but I did learn some. And was able to apply it afterwards (which is the pain of it all, and usually how I learn something!!!!)

    "Everything must serve the idea. The means used to convey the idea should be the simplest and clear. Just what is required. No extra images. To me this is a universal principle of art. Saying as much as possible with a minimum of means."
    -John Huston, Director
