How Were You Trained?

I'm not sure if this question or thread fits in this location or not, but I'm curious how others were trained?
I have about 8 courses now in art/photography from a community college and a university combined, and I'm currently in a BA in Art Practices program at PSU in Portland, OR.

Hi Laura!

I am 58 years old and the only training I had was 7th grade art. Being an artist is like becoming an accomplished guitar player. One must always be drawing....just like a guitarist always carries around the instrument, the artist should always carry a sketch pad and supplies. I use the Etch-A -Sketch on travels. I draw/paint every day.
