The best way to judge a school is by the student work, and to be honest that place does not look very strong. If you are looking for a place to study in NY, checkout The Art Students League, The Water Street Atelier, and The New York Academy of Art. I believe that is where Steven Assael teaches.

Mr. Gist, are you going to be at Watts next year? I'm seriously considering coming to study there for a while once I get the cash and I would love to take a class or two with you...

thanks a lot for the info. your right mr. gist - the students work doesnt look strong at all.
im checking The Art Students League, The Water Street Atelier, and The New York Academy of Art. the last for now has the most information out out on the web. but ill try and get some info on the rest.

lol!!! Mr. Gist... my name is Erik, Mr. Gist is my dad.
As long as there is a Watts Atelier I will probably be teaching there in one way or another, but definitely for the next couple years. I would love to see you in the classes.
Anyone interested can co checkout www.artrenewal.com for information on the better schools in your area, atruly great resource.
good luck guys

Haha, I actually broke out the formalities in hopes of weaseling a tuition break from you.
Thanks for the response, it looks like a great place for someone like me who has been disillusioned by my crappy education that I've already halfway received.

LOL! Mr.Gist! HA!
Yeah strych9ine, Watts is a great place to learn, I went there for all too short a time, and it was a very cool experience. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone.

Going to Watts now...the school is just awesome. The teachers are all inspiring and they all rule, if any single one of them leaves I'll be sad
