Try the art supply stores, first. You can find some top-notch instructors that way, and the classes are frequently in the evenings after the store has closed for the day. Also try your community college. The classes themselves are usually pretty basic, but some of the teachers are professional artists who simply teach on the side. Those teachers will know where the best workshops will be, when you're ready to move on. Another group that will have information for you, is your local art association.

I am a late blooming artist wanna be.
I have children and cannot just up and start going to college again for art.
I would love to have some formal training thou and do not know where to or what to look for.
I was thinking maybe a studio to study at?
At this point after dabbling in many things, I know art is for me.
So, I have been self training with tutorials and lessons on line.
I am in the FT. Lauderdale/ Miami area.
