At the academy

At the academy

As I already mentioned at my bio and page about the artist, last year (2013 )I’ve won. Grant at the Academy of Classical Painting (AKS, Sremska Kamenica, Serbia). Most of the time there at the moment, we are drawing charcoals on paper, mostly large scale formats (up to 2x1.5m). What is the difference being self educated or at the academy?
