Graphics School Follow Up

A few months back, Episodic Love approached me about starting up the Supernatural.tv Graphics School again, and I told her that she needed to put up polls to test how many people would be interested in the idea.
Although a number of people showed interest, it just simply wasn't enough to convince me that the school would be able to last for very long. Thus, I'm going to keep the graphics school closed simply because there isn't enough interest at the moment to make it worth opening up again and have it stay open for a substantial amount of time.
However, if enough people do come forward, either by posting in this thread or by contacting me via PMs, I may reconsider the matter and look into opening the school again.
For those of you who may be new to the forums and have no idea what I'm talking about, allow me to give you a brief lowdown on what the graphics school was when it was first opened.
The graphics school is essentially a place where more experience artists or simply artists that felt they had something to teach others, could sign up to be "teachers" and then teach a course on whatever material they felt like covering. Here is an example of a course I ran when the school was open called, "Grunge Textures and You". That should give you a good idea of the formate of the classes and how things were run.
The school's primary purpose was not only to share knowledge about graphics work and styles because that can be done a plan old tutorial, but it was also designed to provided a closer one-on-one feel instead of just reading a set of instructions and to give a large more comprehensive look at a topic, such as Grunge art, instead of just one brief example.
Primarily, the school was also for beginners wanting to learn different techniques, but the classes were open for anyone to take because we never discourage anyone from learning something new. Also, classes were offered to various photo-editing software users, such as GIMP and Photoshop, so no one felt left out or excluded. And if there wasn't a class being taught for your program, you could make your own lesson for others!
So yeah, it was a very unique aspect to the fanart forum, but in the end it just couldn't remain open due to a lack of interest from both people wanting to be teachers and also people wanting to participate. However, as said in the beginning of this post, if you are interested in this, please say something in here or PM me about the issue, and if enough interest presents itself sometime in the future, I'll reopen the school.
Thanks very much to EpisodicLove for contacting me about this idea! I always love to hear from people that want to try something new or to try to bring something that they liked back.
Thanks for reading,
