My cousin, who is incredibly hot, was a grad student in GD there and just transferred to SCAD cause she didn't know anyone and was bored out of her mind. Missed your chance to bone her. HA!

oh yeah, and if you are good, your good. And art education isnt gonna help you get a job, its all about being fresh and meeting people. Only go to art schools to study, not for career training.

 

my opinion, for what its worth.

yeah they should just consider art school a hobby.. cause an art degree doesnt get you anywhere except to be an art teacher..

i toured SVA. it looked like a great art school . Theyre like the only college that offers a major in cartooning. If my memory serves me correctly, they had great programs for cartooning, and animation in general...my mom wont give me a dime if i go to art school....meh...

art institute is good for networking but the school itself is a joke.

 

columbia is decent but they are far from up to date with industry standards in film and animation.

 

its what you do with your ba thats important. but really the more money you pay and the higher prestige of the school the easier it is to make the friends in the industry that you need. i graduated from columbia college and everyone thinks i graduated from columbia university. you`d be suprised the difference this has made for me.

if the only thing you want to do is learn to draw then the last place you want to go to is an art college. they expect you to be able to draw before coming there. i`d say just practice by yourself. your better off that way and it will save you money.

Man, SCAD is dangerous. I have multiple friends who went there and ALL of them have at least one or two stories of being attacked, shot, robbed or just fucked with. There's a gang (or some shit) in Savannah who's "initiation" involves randomly killing a SCAD student.

It's funny because I kicked it there for a while and it seemed cool -- not as much like some of the more crime-friendly spots I've been around.

 

Pretty good school, though.

On another note, the art industry is tough. I went to an art school when I got out of high school and reality hit me pretty quickly -- it's a business and it's entirely governed by business rules. I'm not sure what type of mentality you have but be prepared to face a lot of bullshit and hard work if you're serious about being a professional artist. It isn't easy and you have to be devoted to it 100% to be successful.

 

Good schools I know of personally, and all of them have their downsides, mainly high tuition:

 

-Rhode Island's school of art & design (forget the exact title)

-SVA in NYC

-Cooper Union in NYC (good luck getting in there, they have an ILL hometest)

-Art Institute of San Francisco (and the other "Art Institutes" nationwide, and I've heard good and bad things about these schools, but SF at least has a rep as one of the better ones)

-SCAD (see post above)

-Pratt in Brooklyn

-The Joe Kubert School in Jersey (comic book/cartoon shit ONLY)

-Ringling in Florida (they called me hella times when I was graduating high school, trying to bring me "aboard". Sounded gay to me but I've heard decent things about them nonetheless).
