Art School

Recommended Posts

Guest ToYs

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"

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.

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...

From my experience (at design school):

 

Do not show them pictures/sketches of graffiti that you did.

 

Grades/Test Scores matter much more than a portfolio.

 

pretty girls = fashion design

no attitude/acessibility girls = fine art

not hearing about ballet = go to a visual art school

 

And think about what you want to do, "art" is very general. If you don't mind moving, look for schools w/ a reputation. Search for what schools have a good program for what you wanna do (motion, film, graphic, painting, blah, blah, blah)

Be selective.

 

From what I've heard,a degree from a place like "The Art Institute of (wherever)"....is like used toilet paper.In other words,not that good.

 

Have at least 20 to 30 "good" pictures of stuff you've done and then narrow it down from that for a final portforlio.

 

Write a page or two on why you want to attend and what you might think your future plans may be....most places will want something like this anyway.

ok now the question is: Do i pay the fifty dollar fee just to get these greedy bastards to look at me?

 

im thinking i would major in illistration, maybe sequential art. i draw like distorted wierd characters and shit. i dont know alot of people ask me if i have mental problem after they look at my stuff. meh even if i dont go to school im still going to keep drawing.

They will likly tell you or give you an outline........or a "test" like give you a list of things to draw........fiqure drawing and painting, interior room drawings with people with out......they want to see you can grasp the idea of perportion and all the jazz...........................talk to the school man go there and see them yadd yadda

 

 

 

good luck!

 

 

 

I have to say art school girls suck they are stuck up or high on themselfs like NO other.............graphic design sluts SUCK

 

Toronto has alot of silly hoes like this ocad and sheridan like woah
