    Simple questions

    When concept artists refer to their experience at school in ID, are they referring to Industrial or Interior design? (yes, I know, silly question, but I'm not sure).

    I'm about to head off to school, I'm planning to begin school at a university, where I'll take the first year or two, before transferring to a real art school (thats the plan anyway). Is this a good idea to save money? Taking english/math at a university first?

    The next question is; given the choice of a degree with general Art or ID, which would be a better foundation for a concept artist (my guess is Art, but I hear a lot of concept artists talk about how valuable their time in ID was, although that might be something different than I'm thinking of)?

    And finally there are so many stupid classes required for this university art degree: print making, introduction to ceramics, relief prints, etc... should I even bother taking this crap, as I do not image a real school would require that (or do they?)?

    1.Industrial design.
    2.Taking care of your gen ed classes and then transferring to an art school is something many people do.
    3.Most concept artists with a degree have it in illustration. If you're more interested in buildings and vehicles than characters and creatures, then ID might be better.
    4. Whether those classes are crap or not depends totally on the school/instructor. They could be incredibly useful, they could be a total waste of time. This is true of art schools as well.

    Take a look at the 4 year Diploma Program in Concept Art for Animation and Video Games at Max The Mutt (in Toronto). We are very affordable. Also check out our thread to read what students are saying about the school.
