I live really close to NYC and I'm a sophomore in hs right now. I'd like to go to an art school in new york city. Any recommendations? What would I have to do to prepare? I'm not taking a lot of art classes in my high school (parents and teachers are kind of forcing me to take regular classes..I really would if I could.) I think I have average grades, about a 3.5 gpa. I'm taking all these honors and ap classes. Sometimes I get overloaded with work I don't to get practice for days.
