If anyone is interested there is a new Atelier program that is starting in October in Providence Rhode Island. Since the school is new it is cheap, it is only $2000 a quarter. This is a full time program with three hours of life drawing daily.
Also, if anyone is interested I'm trying to post pictures that I have drawn from my classes and notes that I take from class. Hopefully the notes will help other people who might have questions on some of the atelier methods. The address is at my blogspot page.
Zord, your sketchbook rocks. Keep it up with the figure studies, they're really coming along.
If you want a drawing jam you should try giving my teacher a call and seeing if you can come by and draw for a day. I'm sure she'd let you in for a free life drawing session if you're interested in the school.
