Best ways to self educate to become an artist
I wanted to start a thread for all those who want to become artists but haven't had the chance to get education yet for whatever the reason. I'm in a situation in my life where I want to learn as much about art but cannot attend school because of my current work. I'm having trouble finding the most efficient sources to learn like good books, sourcefull internet sites and such are hard to come by.
This forum is obviously a great place to learn but I'm sure there are other sites, books, videos etc as well.
I'd also love to welcome everyone who are going to school to share the techniques, subject, lessons whatever you've learned in school to help us who want to learn outside school.
This thread is open for anyone to share experiences of self studying art, how and what ways school has helped you, the technicues, books, internet sites, whatever that has helped you on your way to becoming an artist.
