Graphic Art Schools



1. Graphic art schools generally offer a degree only in art.

False
Art schools typically will cover a range of different degrees. It is possible to find ones that offer degrees in photography, media, computer animation, interior decoration, design, fashion, culinary art, and more. Certain institutions now offer online courses where you can log on and participate in a virtual classroom from the convenience of your home and complete your specialized college degree.


2. Graphic art schools will require a portfolio.

True
Art schools rate your artistic talents by looking at a portfolio demonstrating your artistic talents. You can gather such a portfolio by taking courses in high school or at a local community college or by getting a part-time job in the field. A good institution will prompt you to develop a portfolio while you are there as well. Institute graduate candidates and Bachelor degree graduates looking for a job will need a portfolio of the work developed while taking classes.


3. Researching who your art school professors will be is not as pertinent as location.

False
Graphic art school professors play a huge role in what and how and what you will learn. Depending on the quality you are looking for in your education, location and faculty play a big role in finding the right educational institute. Generally speaking, an institute in a city that promotes the arts and entertainment industries will attract a faculty of prominent and practicing artists.


4. A graphic art school can help you find a job.

True
Many institutes will provide their students with a list of potential employers. Schools can also offer summer art internships. An artist internship is a good way to develop contacts before graduating from an institution that specializes in art training. Jobs following your education vary from actor, painter, web designer or even theater lighting technician and more.


5. Art school is a way to honor God by developing the gifts He's given you.

True
Proverbs 19:6 - Many will intreat the favour of the prince: and every man is a friend to him that giveth gifts.
