I just got out of highschool and Im curently attending a Junior college. I've never really known what I've wanted to do until latly, which is art (still pretty vague.) I really want to go to an art school and further my own art. But I havn't a clue were to start in terms of researching a school. Is it as simple as going to the schools and seeing if you like the feel or do I need to try and hunt down alumni and see what kind of work they produced? I live in Oakland CA. so I have a lot of options in my area alone.
An other problem is a large part of me wants to move to Nashville TN. but I need to be enrolled in a school there before I can. Any help is appretiated. Thank you.
