The Pros and Cons of Art School


The pros and cons of Art School. Is Art School worth all the trouble? On today’s video I talk about things to consider when you’re thinking about going to art school.

I point out six topics to ponder about: Entitlement, Connections, Critique, Time, Paper work and Money. Even when coming from a country where education is free it’s still not necessarily the best option for everyone towards a creative career. But I must say I’m grateful for all the years I’ve been allowed to absorb information and inspiration in the classroom. I’d hope everyone would have the chance to be a full time student at some point in their lives. Still to succeed in the art field you don’t need a (certain) school but perseverance, passion and little luck.
