TG LD 1h 30m by ~Gamerhomie on deviantART

Adam Nowak stopped in last night. We talked about the idea that as an art student (Adam is currently enrolled at the American Academy of Art) there really shouldn't be a "summer break." With so much ground to cover since the 4 years is not nearly enough time, he's thinking about making the most of the time between classes. Attending figure drawing is a great idea. Getting out and doing some plein air should be high on the list. You could also get friends and family to pose for portraits. You could also try contacting a local artist in the field you're looking into to perhaps intern, or have a studio visit. Summer jobs aside, there is a lot you can do between classes to be better prepared for the next session and after graduation.
