Oh my which school.
Well I have visited two Ateliers. Jeffrey Mim's atelier in North Carolina and The Academy of Realist Art in Toronto. Both schools are of excellent quality but have slight differences in their teaching methods and philosophy. I would like to start my training in the spring of 2008. In Toronto you learn life drawing right from the beginning with instruction but in North Carolina you must wait about three years before you are instructed in portraiture and figure drawing. I am leaning towards Toronto because I am not inclined to wait that long to start figure studies but would like some thoughts and opinions on this. Has anyone out there attended or are presently attending either atelier and could share their thoughts on the school. Any input would be helpful at this point. TIA
