So here's the deal. I live in New Zealand and can't afford to move to another country and pay living costs on top of the art school costs, so I decided to try and find good online courses that will give me the same accreditation as actually attending the course on campus.
I want to get a Bachelors of the Fine Arts majoring in Illustration.
I have no previous art school experience and have no idea where to look.
So far I'm considering the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, if anyone has more information on them, that would be fantastic! They're the only art school so far that seems to provide the course online.
Really this thread has two questions.
1. What are some great online courses that when I finish, will leave me accredited and actually have a decent resume?
2. Is the Academy of Art University any good?
Art school isn't everything, but it does help on the resume. Experience matters the most. I heard that AAU online school's pretty okay, but I don't recommend it. It's not a strong school for art. But that's just what I heard from other people.
I can't go into a good length response since the original one I made for Tonality (about 8 paragraphs worth lol) didn't ever show up. Neither did the 2nd to last one I posted..
But I will tell you though that AAU's Illustration major is certainly strong.
