Recently, the rising costs of tuition and the common misconceptions of unemployment, such as a saturation of artist in the job field and high unemployment rates upon graduation have begun dissuading students from pursuing an arts degree and attending art school. There are other options available to students, and it is true that the majority of them are cheaper than the art school route. However, what it makes up for in financial saving it lack in richness and depth of learning. These other options will teach you technical skills to make art, but they will not provide students with the networking opportunities, connections, learning processes and other supplemental skills that will take their work and careers to the next level. Art school is the best path a young artist can take in their life because of the skills and preparation for a future career it provides. This blog will navigate you through this argument.

    First off, well done! I just wanted to say I’m very impressed with your site. It blows mine out of the water haha.

    Anyway, you’ve done a great job making your site very appealing both in content and organization. The site itself is organized and formatted really well and lends itself to the overall argument. Each section in the menu is clean and uncluttered which helps makes everything digestible.

    As far as content goes, you did an awesome job of translating your essay into easy to read pages and it wasn’t just superficial information either. Each page has substance to it and has a good balance of text and media and the media is really entertaining. The videos are perfectly selected.

    For me, what really made this site is the personal perspective you give it. As a non-art major you made it incredibly relatable and your testimony helped me understand your argument. On top of that, the works you showcase on your portfolio are all really dope.

    Again, well done!
