My entire life, I've always wanted to learn art, to improve, and to eventually have a career in art. I wanted to go to art school, but, I didn't qualify for any financial aid and, well, art school is really fucking expensive. So I searched the web for articles about what people learned, how to get better, and stayed hunched over my computer day and night. However, I came to the sad realization that I couldn't find much about traditional art classes and the lessons that are taught in daily classes.

So, I decided to bite the bullet and go ahead and go. So here I am, at college, about $35,000 dollars in debt. And I decided that I'd keep track of the assignments and the lessons that I'm being taught and add them to this blog, as a resource for other people who might night have the resources, guts, or time to attend art school full time.

For now, I'll just post the class and the assignment that I've had on the days that I get them, but maybe eventually I can figure out a way to better organize things. Any comments, suggestions, or added "assignment" ideas are greatly appreciated! I'd like to know that I'm not just doing this in vain. :)

Hey, I've been thinking about Artschool for some time now, and I think it's nice that you're telling folks what to expect if we make it into the average (I assume) ArtSchool.

Any chance you'll let us veiwers see some of your art once you get deep into the semester? Or give your opinions sometimes on the assighnments? Or just your passing thoughts while you're working?

For sure. :) right now I don't have a scanner, but it's actually on its way in the mail. But once I do, I can post up my work (and my grade!) in the comments for each class. That way anybody who might be trying out these projects could have a point of comparison. Good ideas! Thanks for the input.
