Hello fellow Conceptartians,
Ive been giving these ateliers a lot of thought and It would be my absolute dream to attend one of these art programs. It would be nice to add another set of strings to my bow before I go out into the real world. However I keep hitting the same wall which stops me dead in my tracks. How..do I afford it?
Roughly £50,000 (pounds sterling) is needed for a 3 year program at your average atelier.
I understand that I should do anything to follow my dream, but at this moment in time I Just don't know how to do it. So far I have £4,000 in the kitty to contribute. Getting together £46,000 just seems unrealistic. I have considered the option of getting a loan, but surely with figures that high the interest would overtake you? I don't want my parents to suddenly have a great big loan dropped onto their shoulders because of a foolish gamble, it's not fair to do that.
So, I'm asking you guys for some advice. How have you all managed to scrape together this moolah? what methods have I overlooked or missed out?
It must be possible to do this if everyone else is doing it.
Oh just so you know the Ateliers I am considering is Laafa or the Atelier in Florence.
A million thanks in advance
