Community centers are a good source. Sometimes, art classes are taught at libraries too.

I notice that no matter where we go the drawing basics are pretty much the same way, it depend on us to figure it out how we will practice to improove ourselves, also, i believe art classes are necessary because we need a guide to put us back in the right track when there is really something missing our eyes.

If i had the oportunity to take drawing lessons personally with someone, i would accept it.

Sorry it took me so long to get back to you. And sorry to dredge up a somewhat old thread (well, couple days.)

I wanted to post this, rather than PM cause there may be some people out there interested in these texts:

Here's some for Art History. These are mostly Western art, and not the ones on art by women I have--I figured you just wanted the basics, and these are good, though they can get expensive. Should you choose to get them, buy them used or something from Amazon.

Gardner's Art Through the Ages: A Global History (I have 13th edition, which is decently new, but there may be the 14th out there. Author: Fred Kleiner

History of Modern Art by H. H. Arnason. I love this book. It's huge. Only problem, is some images are black and white, but most are color. I've got 5th edition, but I'd bought it a couple years back, so something newer may be out.

Art instruction:

Drawing from Life third edition. Clint Brown and Cheryl McLean. Goes into bone structure, anatomy, realism, and good gestures as well. Some color photos, but mostly black and white, which is fine cause most are charcoal, red sienna or other types of monochromatic drawings.

Drawing Lessons from the Great Masters Robert Beverly Hale. I bought this randomly, but found it very helpful. It shows you sketches by famous masters, which demonstrates how to get a good under-drawing. It also helps you focus on specific parts of the body and practise those before getting into the full length body.

So how man of you people on manga tutorial have taken art classes? I personaly haven't and I feel like if I do It won't be considered my natural talent. What do you guys think?

It ultimately depends on where you go, what you do, and who you learn from. Every each of my current improvement and level I would never reach if it wasn't for donivan. I would still be doing the same generic crap, hold the same generic dreams, and really push myself to become the level of mastery that I so envy right now. While others may disagree, to me the most important thing isn't the class, but everything you can actually pull from the instructor. A good student will give 100% to what the teacher teaches, a dedicated will try to suck them dry of every bit of information they possess, this means going beyond just what that instructor teaches in class, and learning much more. I will even go far enough to say all art classes are not on the same level, I guarantee what half the people learned in there high school and less class is probably just childs play compared to what you learn if you go to ringlon (I think I spelled it right.) or art center because there is more to art then just having a finished piece and just because a picture looks nice, that doesn't make it a good composition. A lot of people who just draw or learn from the internet don't really understand that.

I agree with Mage.

There's a lot you can learn from people who have been studying art their whole life. And they most likely learned from someone else who's studied their whole life. And after you've learned, you're able to apply and make it your own. I myself will use the internet and books for inspiration, but it's building upon stuff learned in the past (though, I know I have a long way to go still.)

I'm lucky because I have an Art College about 10 minutes (by car) away from my house. They have about 4 different Saturday morning art classes per semester that go for about 15 weeks. It's sort of expensive though. $225 ball park.

That's not bad for college. At UIS tuition for one semester is over $5000 (they've raised it since I graduated,) and it's even more expensive at other colleges. Plus the cost for the class.

That's okay for a community college--is that where those classes are being held?
