apprenticeship for six years, many other courses and classes.
Personal library contains over 200 books on art and is still growing;
my art book collections rivals many public libraries.
I have attended several colleges, taken many many art classes,
If I was able to put all my studies in one package, it would probably equal a masters degree in art.
I am still learning.
