Today I want to speak to the question I asked myself a couple of years ago. Should I go to art school?
I spent copious amounts of hours googling and finding blogs just like this one outlining the pros and cons of undertaking a formal artistic training.
I’m not going to tell you whether to go or not to go but I CAN relay my experience.
At the outset I want to make VERY clear that I hold no malice towards the school that I went to, nor its teachers. This blog is about ME and not them. The people who work there are HUMAN BEINGS who have poured their lives and values into that school for years and years. I fully respect them and their paths, however it isn’t the path for me and I absolutely must respect that first and foremost.
There are many ways to go about educating yourself in the arts and thus I fully acknowledge that going to art school is the best path for some people. Some people love it and thrive within that sphere. Some hate it. I was in the second party.
