Is this one of the "Art Institutes" that are found nationwide? I went to The Art Institute of Phoenix, so if it's one of those, and you have any questions, feel free to ask and I'll answer them if I can. /\_/\

thanks very much you guys! i have some questions..is it a very good school? and what would you classify my art as? see..i like storyboarding and character design but i HATE animation. i love illustration and whatnot but i dont often do weird starbucks type graphics that are associated with illustration. im kinda stretched for time as applications are due halloween *eeperz*!

now im really stressed..=P

Just let me know how much the shirts plus shipping will be, and I'll mail off a check. I'd send a money order, but ever since I lost one for $90, money that I never saw again, I've not sent them. Also, I can pay you through PayPal if you've figured that out. If you want, I can help talk you through it. Just let me know. Good luck with making your choice on a school.

Hmmm...well, as a graduate of the Computer Animation program, I can tell you that if you take that course you will definitely be doing animation, obviously. Where I went the only other even close option was graphic design, which I know less about, but they always used Mac computers (which I find strange to use since I'm used to PCs- animation students used PCs). Graphic design will probably have some illustration skills involved, but there will be a lot of just pure design and typography. So I don't know if that's what you want or not, though anywhere you go, it will never be all pure fun- there will always be something (like typography, for instance, which even I had to take a class in) that isn't, but a lot of what you learn, fun or not, is good to know. The plus side is learning all these programs, which come in handy when you're searching for a job, and getting stuff done that you can put on your resume/demo reel/whatever. Plus the things you learn from fellow students, and the connections you can make.
My only firm suggestion would be to avoid any programs that they have JUST started at the school- I took their Bachelors Animation program when it was first offered and often wound up feeling more like a guinea pig than a student, since they were working it out as they went, and we the students sometimes suffered for it. But I would say the Associates program was very good, and I'd recommend it.
