I'm getting back into the swing of school again and have been working hard. We're working with figures/portraits this year and I'm very excited about it. We also have to come up with an independent study (thesis) proposal which I'm also currently working on. We're also going to the MET tomorrow with Juliette Aristides to look at some master drawings and the Winslow Homer exhibit.
If anyone out there is looking for a masters degree program and also is seeking a true academic/atelier training then you should check out the Florence Academy's program. I'm really pleased with the whole program so far and they're some great new additions to the teaching staff: including Gregory Mortenson, Mario Robinson, amongst many others.
