In this class, Christopher teaches a method of geometrical analysis of the model that develops in the student an understanding of the principles of light and shade and the ability to create the illusion of three-dimensional volume and solidity. Pugliese puts a strong emphasis on demonstration and encourages students to start the week by drawing and slowly progress towards painting as they absorb concepts.
Hey, everybody - my name is Marina, and I recently registered at LAAFA for next semester. I'm from Canada, and was planning on living with a relative in Santa Monica until I figured out that the commute by public transport could take hours, and transporting my car from here to LA would be.. questionable. So, I was wondering if anybody living close to the school might be looking for a roommate for two and a half months ,or if anybody has any other suggestions for this kind of situation, all ideas would be greatly appreciated! If need be, I can be contacted by email at firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks so much in advance, and I look forward to meeting everybody in January!
In A3 I only know one student who takes the buses every morning, but I'm not sure where he's coming from. Everyone else commutes.
I can't imagine living in Van Nuys myself, but I'm not a city-boy at all. Though to be honest I've never seen any trouble and feel perfectly comfortable in the school. And I've never really explored the city.
Santa Monica is generally nice. Commuting on the 405 can be fast when you're going opposite the traffic, which I think would happen with late-morning classes (don't take my word on that, though).
Short answer: you can try getting in touch with other A4 students and arranging something, but you'll probably need that car.
