    The Art Department location poll. Which location are you interested in?

    Hey all,

    We are going to be making more announcements this week about the upcoming Art Department foundations, concept art, illustration and drawing and painting programs but I wanted to take a moment to see which locations were most appealing to you as students.

    We are soooo excited about this. I can't wait. http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=172141 is the link to the big discussion thread and tuition poll, in case you have not seen it. We are essentially taking on the big art schools head to head with a program that costs a third as much, offers no interest student loans, and a million dollars in scholarships. The connections to the professional community is deeper than all the art schools combined, and we will be able to make the best students industry famous overnight. Care to join us?

    Thanks for voting too!

    I'll gladly move if I have to, but Kansas City is closest to my Midwestern roots. Plus it's a pretty active art community.

    SF is best because it's close, but Richmond and austin are great too since I have family there, if you can count me for all 3

    I wish we could have this in Finland, but I guess Paris, Amsterdam and San Francisco are the best options to choose from .

    I was interested in the program, but I'm living in Japan and without plans and money to move =o

    I would be cool if CA had a online program like the school, with foundational classes like the composition and the color ones

    Since I'm in the Bay Area, I voted SF but hopefully it would be walking distance to BART

    I voted for KC. But, none of those locations really work for me. I, actually, need something more in the Midwest...or an online version.

    You might consider that option, since then you could teach around the world.

    Richmond, VA. Too much west coast love at CA.org, need some outposts on east-siiiiide. Plus it's close to home.

    Agreed with BuckWeisel, so much art shit over on the west coat. The majority of the good ateliers are around CA and the west. Need to put some stations down in Florida son

    But for me, Richmond is closest.

    I chose Richmond because it's closest to where I live, but Kansas City is a close second, especially since the cost of living/apartment rental is lower there than it is in Richmond. So if this was multivote I'd probably have chosen both.

    Edit: IF there were better opportunities in San Francisco or Austin, (for example, internships at development studios, or ateliers that I wouldn't be able to access in KS or VA, then it might justify the added travel distance and cost of living for me. I'd need more information to decide.

    Also, perhaps an extended stay hotel would be a better choice than getting an apartment? Does Europe offer these at a fair price?

    I'm interested in then program but I'm living in Malaysia, so those places are not convenient for me.
    Online classes will be the best bet for me. Any chances that Asian country will be considered? Thailand, China ?
