How to finance a career change to Graphic Design?

Dear readers, I am thinking of making a career change to Graphic Design. I currently work unhappily as an Office Manager and have been out of undergrad for nearly 2 years. I am not that skilled in using Graphics software- at least not to a level that I think the profession requires. I want to seek a more formal education but it will cost me an arm and a leg and find that I am not offered financial aid by most institutions because I already hold a Bachelor's degree. However, I find it difficult to pay out my own pocket for the courses as I can hardly save money every month. Please offer me your suggestions as to how I can finance this education or more economically learn the software/knowledge. (Someone suggested purchasing tutorial books, but I would also like to get classroom instruction to supplement.) Thank you for your comments. And for fun, please write what city/state/country you are located. I am in New York, New York, USA.
