  • Art schools like CalArts and SCAD make lots of promises and demand lots of tuition, but are they worth it? I go over the pros and cons of formal art education and hopefully answer some questions you guys have about it~

              In my country, nothing is accepted as art if it wasnt realistic. And theres nothing as art school

                    So the one about bragging about how little sleep someone got and such; I feel like this is very prominent in high school as well, and a lot of people think it's cool to stay up all night and eat nothing all day, when not only can it make your work worse, but it can and will at times KILL you. It always makes me so mad whenever I hear convos about others and the competition with certain things that they shouldn't be competing against.

                    People also like to say "well I have insomnia" and while (in RARE) cases that is true, most of the time it's because they stayed up all night on their phone or computer. Like don't use mental or chronic illnesses as an excuse, whether you have them or not; it's not cool or quirky to have or pretend to have them

                                      XachuiizK ._. Not sure of your current education level, but honestly go to community college first. Paying 30k-40k per year is not worth it for classes like speech or english composition, etc. It is ridiculous. Even some foundation classes like design/color theory can be learnt at plenty of affordable schools. I transferred from CC to SCAD. Yes I have debt, but I went for 3 years for just under the cost of a full year. Some of my younger peers went the full 4 years right out of high school, and their level of debt is insane. While I enjoyed SCAD and consider it worth the cost/time, I am a strong believer in self education. Aka. books, online classes, there are so many options available now. I’d say the only thing that outweighs that is that in art school you can create great connections with fellow artists, so it is great for friends and networking. That and professors who have worked in the industry so learning from their experience was great. The path of College isn’t always for everyone, but education “IS” no matter what path you take to achieve it. Best of luck to you on finding your path!

                                    To all the kiddos ready to enter the adult world:

                                    I know things seem scary. College, expenses, etc. I was once there. I used to have panic attacks about going to a university and dealing with thousands and thousands of people and college costs.
                                    I am currently a senior and soon gonna get a "real job".
                                    Anybody that is where I once was, I have only this to say:
                                    -You will be ok. Even if you mess up, it may seem like the world is crashing, its not. You will be ok.
                                    -I can't stress this enough. Take out only the loans you NEED. Dont take anything to pay for your expenses. Student loans are serious and follow you around if you don't pay em off. Avoid them if possible. Look for potential scholarships too.

                                    Sorry for the novel. But this is something I feel is important to say.

                                              The 'not sleeping and living on coffee' thing; that was what I went through at the school I went to, and it was even enforced by the teachers! I had one teacher that, for real, told everyone, "You can sleep when your dead." Looking back on it now, it was really dangerous and the fact that one of the teachers was encouraging it really made me wonder how many people got sick or even dropped out due to burnout because of that sort of advice. It was fucked up.

                                                        I can really relate with the expense, the grades, the overwork, and the bubble aspect of art school. However I could not relate with most of the pros except for having other people to talk art with, and learning how to critique my art and others art, ngl it made me really hate my old art (especially my backgrounds) but i'm thankful that i did for it made me know where i need to improve.

It is a lot of money still but so far (I'm about to start my sophomore year) it's been amazing! Very stressful at times but I have already made so much progress as an artist not just with art but understanding how the "art world" works. I love when we get to have professional artists come in and share their experiences that they've had so far! (I go to PCA&D btw, it's is a relatively small school but i think that's one of it's best features.)
