ok guys, heres a dilemma.

So last year i was doing an art course in a really good college,. best in my area. it was amazing, if tough. problem is i didnt work enough so i failed to get into the next year. i decided to go to a different art college cos no other skills. the college is trash in comparison and i feel like im learning nothing. do i build a new portfolio from scratch or do i just buckle down and work att the shittier art college?

Spending money to learn nothing seems retarded. Spend it on gumroad/patreon/online shit like NMA/private online mentorship/books instead.

Seems like you're gonna have better results if just learn by yourself.

>> No.3710681

>>3710674
This desu. If youre not learning and improving then the college is not at fault. Going to a shittier one wont help.

I wouldnt advise paying for something you could learn by tourself if you have enough drive

>>3710676
Nippa you dont. Accreditation from a college is important if youre going into study to be a doctor or whatnot, for obvious reasons.
If you produce good work and have good portfolio, thats all you need to get hired.

What art job cares about a degree? What non-art job cares about an art degree?

I'll tell you advice I heard from two art school grads.

Art school's only good if you already have some kind of talent. It's for polishing, not learning from <10% mastery.
If you've been drawing for some 5-10 years before art school, you should do fine, but if you've done less than that, you're wasting your time.
I'd tell you to do something easy but profitable, but if you're failing
>ART
then I mean, you don't have much hope.

Hate to tell you this, but if you're fucking up intro-level classes, probably NGMI.

Also,
>WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING GOING TO GET A DEGREE IN FUCKING STUDIO ART? ARE YOU FUCKING RETARDED? DO YOU LIKE FUCKING BURNING MONEY? YOU'RE GONNA BE FUCKING HAIRLINE-DEEP IN STUDENT LOANS BEFORE YOU GET HALFWAY TO AN ASSOCIATE'S

>>3710674

Don't spend money if you're not gonna do the work, or if you're at a shite school. That's a waste of money. If it's cheap where you are, it's worse because it's just a big waste of time.

Just focus on building your portfolio and studying. You don't need an art degree for an art job. It helps sure, but they will pick someone who has experience and a good portfolio over someone with a meh portfolio with a college degree. Neet it out if you have to. I'm at school with a full ride going into the visual arts, but you shouldn't be in school for the degree. it should be for people who have already been drawing for years and want to improve and get a better portfolio, but even then you don't need college for that to happen,

Art degrees are still expensive almost everywhere because they aren't considered real degrees. Our (free) public universities don't even offer Art outside of children's education degrees, so you gotta go to expensive private ones.

anything in the art profession wont guarantee you a job with a degree. only internships
