OK so I have never had private art lessons before and I wanted to start.
Here are some things that might make it easier to answer the questions I posted below.
My reason for taking art lessons: I want to focus entirely on drawing the human figure. Start with the basics, then go into muscles, poses, etc. No painting or anything complicated, just drawing humans in pencil and learning the formulas for it. That is all I want to get out of my lessons.
EDIT: I want to focus on the EXACTLY the science found in this thread: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=30205
I wanted to know the following:
1. How much can I expect to pay for 1 session and how long will it be?(just ballpark this based on your experience. IE. $10 for 30 mins)
2. How often do you suggest meeting? Is meeting 3 times a week for an hour too much or too little?
3. What are some things to keep in mind or watch out for when I look for an instructor?
Thanks! I hope I made myself clear enough, if I didn't just say so!
