Letter to ARC

From Carla Crawford

Published before 2005


Dear Mr. Ross and others at ARC,

First off, I would like to thank you as it has been such a pleasure to find your website. After five years of an art school education that left me greatly frustrated and with few skills, you are like finding a small voice of sanity amidst the storm of chaos. What a comfort to know I'm not alone!

I would like to ask your advice for how best to continue my art education. At present I am determined to find a way to learn what I was never taught in school - that is how to draw and paint classically. My problem is that after five years of school I do not have the greatest financial freedom and unfortunately I am worried about entering into a program that would give excellent training but would offer no MFA or teaching credential. [...]

I appreciate your time and patience and thank you again for your voice in the art world. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Much Thanks,
Carla Crawford
