Art Schools

As varied as the arts are, so are the type of educational opportunities available to students interested in pursing their interests in everything from painting to photography to graphic arts. The type of school a person chooses should be based on his/her financial resources and future career plans.

If a person is simply interested in pursuing some form of art as a hobby, perhaps his or her educational needs may be best met by local work shops offered through art institutes or community instruction. This type of instruction is usually done by local artists and is often at a lower cost. A student may gain more knowledge and skills through this format, but most such classes are not held for credit. If a person is thinking about developing artistic skills to pursue a career such as a graphic artist, commercial artist or photographer he/she may find vocational schools and community colleges a good place to begin training.

While more expensive than a local workshop, the programs offered at these types of institutions can lead to Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degrees. When a person is seeking a very intense, focused and specialized art education, he/she may look at entering a four-year art school. A four-year art school is similar to a college or university in that they offer bachelor degrees and some even offer masters degrees. The difference is art schools are very competitive and only take a limited number of applicants. However, in return, four-year arts schools offer very focused and specialized instruction.

The faculty at such intuitions are considered some of the best instructors in their areas. All types of art instruction vary in quality. Before choosing on program over another, a potential student should be sure to research the institution and its programs. If possible, visit the school or place of instruction and talk to other students. This can help a person decide if the program is a good fit for him/her and his/her future plans.
