    HELP: Looking for Housing in California for a class at LAAFA or Watts Atelier

    hey people,

    I would like to take a class at the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Arts or at the Watts Atelier.

    I was wondering if someone could offer me housing near one of these schools.

    It would be for a period of 2 months, the period of a class. Wouldn’t' it be great? Can someone give me this opportunity?? I wish it dearly.

    I am asking since living in Cali is expansive and I live in Canada, so I cannot afford getting a place for myself. I would be willing to pay. We can discuss it (thru PM, plz).

    THANKS

    why dont the two of you just get a furnished month to month and split the rent.

    Your life will be hell gettting around LA if you dont have a car. Unless you find a good safe place between the academy and a good art store like continental art supply. A place in between those two might be walkable on a daily basis. You could always load up on a mass amount of supplies all at once and just live as close to the school as possible. There are a ton of apartments on sherman way (road).

    I live 2 blocks from Watts and split a 2 bedroom apartment with a friend. OUr rent is $1060 month to month, but this complex has a special where you stay for 6 months and get a $75/month discount. So basically we pay $985 total for 6 months. A one bedroom apartment here will run you $860/month but you can also get the 6 month discount. It's a nice location about a mile from the beach. EVerything is nearby and convenient. I walk to school and don't really use my car that much anymore.

    gaboartpage: hey buddy, i've read your thread. It's awsome that you want to go there too.

    I hope that u get to go.

    I won't be going before next year probably...

    Just saw the classes at the Associates in Arts. Looks great.

    I've studied Loomis and Vilppu for 2 years now. I would definatly want to see Vilppu in person. I would be great moment. I admire Kevin Chens work too.

    This is my goal !

    Gabriel, I am planning to go to Watts for one 10-week class set this fall! Did you get a response to your email? I called and left a message and also sent an email a few days later, but I have not heard back. I'm trying to get everything planned out, maybe people here on the boards can help me out.

    I live in Florida, so I will also need to find an apartment or a room or something. $860 a month?! :eek: I would love to find some people to share with.

    Do any of you know when exactly the fall sessions run?

    Yeah $860 is actually cheap for this area. San Diego is pretty expensive and to get $600 a month for rent you would have to life about 30 mins away in a not so good neighborhood. The apartments are not furnished, but the only utilities you have to pay for is electric. That averages about $10-20 for one person. The benefit is you can walk to the school and to the grocery store so a car isn't really necessary unless you want to do tourist stuff while here in San Diego.

    Fall semester usually starts early to mid October.

    dzu...985 a month?! Thats awesome! If you stay there longer than 6 months, do you not get the discount? I just might go check that place out. I'd love to be able to walk to school. Just gotta convince my roomates that the farther commute is worth the lower rent

    Walking distance to the school is really important. The current classes are April - June 20th, is there a break all the way between June and October or another set of classes? Also, how many classes could I reasonably fit into one 10-week set, considering I'd have nothing to do out there but draw and paint? I hope you guys don't mind the questions.
