I have a problem regarding Colleges. It is kinda personal. If there is a possibility for someone to give advice, I think my question would go into Case Studies..

Um.. so, can I probably send you a note?

You most certainly can. :floating:

Send your patient request to :iconartistshospitaler: for a faster response. If you don't want it posted publicly, let us know and we'll work with you that way. =)

The more information you can give, the more likely the staff will be able to help you. I don't mean personal details, just... we need more than "help, I can't draw" and such. :XD: lol.

I'm looking forward to getting your request. =)

I've been looking at the Academy of Art University. I want to go into 2D animation, and that seems ot be the only school I can find that has a program for just that(not just a couple calsses to prep for 3D). Is it worth it? I live in centeral Indiana, so its a bit far away and my parents are a little iffy on sending me to San Fransico.

Is it okay if I post this on the patient journal at :iconartistshospitaler:? I'm hoping someone from the East coast can tell you more about schools in your area.

I know that :iconmayshing: goes to SVA [link] in New York City; that's surely closer than San Francisco, though it's also very expensive.

However, if you're going to come to California, I would go to De Anza College in Cupertino (near San Jose) and get an Associate's in Animation. It's MUCH cheaper (like, tens of thousands of dollars cheaper) than the Academy of Arts, and I've heard from more than one person that it's an excellent school. De Anza's animation program is supposed to be in the top 15 of the country. Rent in that area would be cheaper too.

There is also Berkeley City College [link] (not the state university); they apparently offer an Associate's in Animation, and are also much cheaper than AofA. But they're probably not as good as De Anza.

There are also multiple animation schools in & around Los Angeles, for example:

the Animation Academy [link]

Art Institute of California [link]

although I have no idea what their prices are like. San Diego has schools too.

[link] can help you find schools in your area too.

Even before you go to animation school, you can start picking up the essentials by taking life drawing classes wherever you can get them. =) There's no such thing as too much life drawing, haha.

You know, I'm going to go ahead and post your request in the Journal -- if you want me to take it down, just squawk and I will. =) This needs someone who knows more about your area than I do to take a look at it.

I feel like you're missing some of the bigger ones, like Art Center College of Design, Rhode Island School of Design, Maryland Institute College of Art, Pratt, ect ect ect.

Another thing is I don't like how you list some majors for one and then don't for others. Same for saying 'oh this one's expensive' Most of the higher calibre art schools are REALLY expensive. However, if you submit a good portfolio, they give you scholarship.

This list was thrown together in time stolen from other, more profitable pursuits; none of our volunteers make money from the Hospital. It is incomplete and will probably remain so until we have more manpower. We don't even have time to list all the additional schools that have been suggested. Lots of people want help from the Hospital (I have a backlog of patient requests), but very few have stuck around to give it.

Some schools list their majors prominently on their websites; other schools make you dig into the back pages. If you had to go to work in two hours and had already skipped drawing for the day, would you opt to spend that time hunting for obscure information? :XD:

Plus if they ever change their majors, these lists will go out of date. ^^;

If you'd like to volunteer to update the list, or better yet maintain a journal-list that we could link to, that'd be wonderful. =)

Association of Independent Colleges of Art and Design [link]
AND
National Association of Schools of Art and Design [link]

They are Wikipedia articles about two associations that facilitate some accretitation. The AICAD members must also be accretited with NASAD and represent some of the top art colleges in the country (Pratt Institute, Ringling College of Art and Design, San Francisco Art Institute, School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and my own local Kansas City Art Institute just to name a few) and also lists some foreign affiliates for those interested in studying abroad.

If you're looking for an actual college (and not just some community classes), I would start with that list. You can view the wikipedia pages for each college, visit their website, and then you should check out StudentsReview [link] and read up on what students and allumni think of the school. (their pages have some bad code, though, so there are some glitches and occasional pop-ups but it's still a pretty worthwhile site to scheck out - just be sure to weigh the comments).

I've taken a class at DeAnza. If you're a high school student, it's fairly easy and painless to sign up. Highly recommended.
I think a lot of community colleges allow high school students from the area to enroll in freshmen-level college courses.
