Law School for Visual Artists Returns!
It’s back, like a double-edged dagger — an éperon — Nietzsche style. Back by popular demand, and now going on its third year, Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts‘ legendary, ground-breaking, and no-holds-barred educational series for visual artists.
“Informative, thought-provoking, enlightening, sensical. These things should be taught in art school, but I’m glad I learned them here!” notes one artist. “Pure deliciousness. Challenging, spicy, enlightening,” notes another. Read (and see) what other past participants have said here.
Although fees are now attached, artists can register for individual classes or the entire series. Course starts March 20, 2012
