    Har! OC repruhsent...or something. I used to live in Orange (Ekhoff and Chapman I think were my nearest cross streets)...I work in Santa Ana right now doing computer shiat.

    QoH. Hook us up with a boba meet. I've been meaning to try that wacky stuff for a while.

    And now, to be a complete debutant...my schedule:
    This weekend: I'm busy all day saturday at Marshall Vandruffs shot design course. Could do an evening thing after that. Or any time Sunday.

    Next weekend: Busy Saturday, I believe, with the D&D geekery...pretty sure I'm free Sunday...blah...I have to "check my schedule" tomorrow at work. How lame do I sound?

    But anyways, hook something up...if I can't show, looks like more and more OC peeps are chiming in...and maybe some of the LA and SD peeps might show.

    Or not.

    Hi So-Cal people!

    I'm a artist-in-training/computer tech guy (to pay the bills...) from the east coat of Canada, and I am thinking of attending Watts Atelier. I was wondering if you could tell me a bit about Encinitas and the So-Cal area, like prices for accomodations in the area, etc... The exchange rate on our Canadian dollar is brutal, so I have to budget big time hehe

    My plan is to take a 10 week curriculum and take all the classe I can, something like 12 classes, for 39 hours a week? Does this plan make sense, or would this be an overload you would think?

    Well, if you have info that might help me out, that would be greatly appreciated!

    OH, and sorry if this is off topic, just thinking what better way to find out about an area than ask the people who live there

    Hey man...I live a bit north of the area where Watts is, but I can tell you SoCal is expensive...it's one of the more expensive places in the country to live in. But I'm not really sure how San Diego area rates compared to Orange/LA counties.

    As for the class load...that sounds like a hell of a lot to me.

    But if you want my advice do two things.
    1) Go to apartments.com and forrent.com. That will give at least a starting idea of what housing is going to run you. You can make some general assumptions from there.
    2) Email Jeff or Ron at Watts and talk to them about your course load. They will probably be the best judges of how much is "too much."

    Hope that helps man.

    Thanks Fukifino!

    Yeah, I'd heard it was pretty expensive...I'll have to research it more, then make my final decision. The cost of living here, in the poorest part of Canada, is pretty damn cheap, so it would be quite the shock for my modest means...

    And for the course load, I'm trying to get all the learning I can compressed within those few months, but I don't wanna go overboard either...

    as for watts they consider a full load 6+ classes... if thats all your doing and expences are paid other than working i can see taking a full weeks (7) plus if you dont know what do do with yourself when not at watts and alone in sd you can push to 10 and get one hell of a foundation. its 325 or 335 a class i cant remember and when your over 4 classes you get 10% off and there are even packages they have been trying out. plus you get the friday sketch free with a 4 class enrollment.

    i personally have to work and attend university so i only rally have time for 2 and barely make rent and eat.

    thats life for you. if you want proof that the watts system works when applying hard work and dedication look at Pandawhipped and DZU. they are awesome!!!!! they have improved so much since they first came to watts around when i started. i used to be par with them now i look up to them. if you have the $$$ and the time take as many as you can... but pace yourself so you dont burnout because it would be a shame.

    come on FUK organize this and lets get a group meet up somewhere between LA and SD so we can catch up to the seattle and UK groups. last thing we need is JP42 coming down here and showing us how its done back in the land of starbucks.
