Teaching myself art while in college
Hey guys I just started at a liberal arts university and I'm not sure if I want to attend an art college in the future, so I might as well hone my skills here. I was just wondering what works for other people who do this, like do you plan out your own agendas and goals frequently? For now, I'm going to focus on anatomy, the basics, start working digitally, but I'm looking for advice that will keep me working at a high level throughout the year. I feel like there are so many resources available, it just takes dedication to do it on your own. Thanks!

the best schooling I ever had!
I took a workshop with a guy named Jim Orr and he rocked my world - I learned more from him in a few days than in all of college - he now sells a DVD that is his current coursework - it's at Dick Blick I think - if not his site will probably have it www.jdorr.com
Great stuff! Good luck...

And just keep doing it. It's not a process you pick up in one day and master; it's a lifelong career/ lifestyle that you're embarking on.

Thanks for the tips! Yeah that's why I'm holding off on a wacom for now, it forces me to use (and enjoy) traditional media

Wacom tablets are wonderful but I will admit I did learn how to paint first long before I used a tablet. Painting traditionally has a certain tactile charm to it where digital can be so far removed.
