Keep in mind though, success out of remotely managed and distant education (of any kind), highly depend on students. Some people learn better when taught locally with sight, touch, and direct feedback/discussion, and some can learn better by reading and experimenting on their own. Personally, I need both and I strongly prefer ones locally.

You might look into your local college, talk to the professor and students, and possibly art schools if you have one near by. I was going to take a course at a local community college and only due to technicality, I'm waiting until the next term to register.
