this isnt something i had looked into very much, but i think i will have to start... except i really have no idea where to start. basically, since a couple hours ago, i started wondering about these art schools and their stance on their approach to art:
im most concerned about these four schools as im getting the feeling that they have very strong illustration/GD programs (they are my top choices so far):
still looking into:
im looking to go into graphic design, but also want to do illustration/digital art as emphasis -
anyways, by approach to art, i mean, are they more traditional, or conceptual? im getting a feeling that a more traditional oriented art education will help me career wise far more than conceptual. and this is a bit of a bias, but i keep thinking that a more traditional art based school will help their students get more connected to the work world, give more opportunities for gaining jobs, and are more commercially oriented in nature - i dont know, im confused.
in fact, im not even completely sure what it means for an art school to be traditional/conceptual.
traditional = classic, learning the basics, strong foundations, realism, ??
conceptual = highly abstract, exploration, modernism ??
