I've always wanted to head towards the direction of art in my future. However, I still have absolutely no idea what I should be doing, and also do not know much about the art schools in America. (I'm not American nor am I studying in the US...) I'm thinking about advertising art(which my mom recommends) and illustration (when I didn't know anything about art except for paper and pencil) but is still very very unsure about it, and I'd like some more information about this. This sounds weird but, how do I know which major will be suitable for me? (because I don't know a lot..) and the information about them
And most importantly, what are some recommended art schools?
Sorry for my uber clueless-ness and sounding desperate (which I am :-( )
I appreciate your replies and thank you for any sort of advice+/recommendations.
Tell me if there's any additional information needed (ex. my work now?)
