Art Center? It was okay. I got there just as some of the monster teachers were leaving. Got lucky But even then I had to hunt down most of the old school instructors. That school is falling apart. Way too expensive. FYI you can sneak in to all the workshops for free. Just don't say anything. Just walk in, set up and draw. By old school teachings I'm talking about classic figure drawing and painting. If you're interested in that type of drawing, I can recommend some books. Relatively cheap too.
John Vanderpoel's The Human Figure. The one with the green cover. Figure Drawing for all it's Worth by Andrew Loomis, Bridgman's Complete Guide to Drawing from Life. Figure Drawing for all it's worth just got reprinted so it's around 25$ Big price drop from 100
