    Art School

    Discussion started by ToYs - Feb 11, 2003

    Ok so im looking into this shit i know some of you are in art schools so hook me up with some info if you got it.

    What schools are good? would i need a high GPA or SAT score to get into one? what kind of prerequesits are required? if i did really bad in high school but went to a community college for a few years would it make up for me doing so shitty in high school? what can i do to be more likely to get my aplication considered?

    im looking for serious answers oNLY! no "haha They dont let toys in art school" or "art schools will turn you into an art fag"

    where do you live? state or region is fine, you don't have to pinpoint your city if you don't want to.

    have a decent portfolio
    get nice slides taken of your works....key word being nice there. take em your self or with a friend that knows how to take pictures or hire someone.
    visit the school if possible. ive only visited risd and almost went there for my under grad, shoulda, now i wanna go there for my grad degree.

    my two cents.

    if it is a pretty dope school you really do need a decent portfolio though, they will overlook your grades if they like it

    ok.... from my experiences, art girls would rather be in
    a) the studio alone, or
    B) at a gallery opening dressed in black with the drink of the month.

    where as film girls would rather be
    a) on set for 12 hours with nothing to do but flirt, or
    B) at a wrap party getting tipsy with film editors*

    make sence>?

    *ok... I thre in the 'film editors thing for my own selfish benefit.

    fr8oholic: i live in northern Virginia but im willing to move. Ok so how would i go about making a "Nice" portfolio? i mostly sketch in a sketch book. do you think it would be a bad idea to take some flicks of a few pieces i have done? Most of my sketch book work isnt graffiti so you have any advice? i dont even know if im a good artist... i know i have alot of room to improve thats why im trying to go to art school in the fisrt place. ive had alot of people say that they liked my stuff and others are like "wow, thats ummm, different. if you wanna know what im talking about i could probobly scan a few to show you...
