More Famous Artists’ Students

I was a 16 year old high school student in 1964 when I took the Famous Artists’ School test. The school repre­sen­ta­tive paid us a visit and said that they usually didn’t take on someone so young because teen­a­gers don’t usually don’t have enough self-​discipline. But I had done so well on the course that they took me on. They were right. I didn’t have the self-​discipline, so I never finished the course. But I have conti­nued to consult the books throug­hout the years. They helped me through two college majors. They are so well thumbed that I have had to rein­force the page holes several times.
