Choosing an Art School

Selecting an art school can be a difficult process, but it is essential to your success as an art student. There are many different options, such as; specializations, accreditation, and degree offerings that you will need to narrow down.

Accreditation is a status awarded to an educational institution that meets or exceeds the stated criteria of educational quality of the accreditation organization.


Do you need an art degree... to be a successful artist? Not by any means! An art degree is no guarantee of success and fame (or even employment).


There are several types of art schools, each with varying degrees of quality, time requirements, degree options, and price ranges.


Choose an art school as you would any other school of higher education.
