opinions on choice of school
hi pple, im an international student. intend to study transportation design n entertainment design(concept art/design).
these r my choice of schools so far.
1. ACCD. program of choice - degree in TD with minor in entertainment deign
2. CA's very own school
3. Cogswell Polytechnical College. program of choice - degree in digital arts and animation but concentration in entertainment design.
i believe cogswell is the least well-known among the 3 so here's some info from the site. http://www.cogswell.edu/entertainment.html
Bachelor of Art Degree in Digital Art and Animation
The Digital Art and Animation (DAA) program offers areas of concentration in Animation, Game Design and Interactivity, Modeling, and Entertainment Design.
Entertainment Design Concentration
The Entertainment Design concentration integrates a strong traditional art background with skills in digital imagery. The course of study includes drawing, painting, illustration, character design, and concept art. It is designed for students interested in digital matte and texture painting as well as concept design. Issues of presentation and delivery are addressed. The ability to transform verbal and written directions into visual representations of characters and scenes is emphasized.
By completing the requirements for the Digital Art and Animation degree students will:
- Apply the principles of the arts to convey a message or tell a story,
- Create artwork using the tools of modern technology,
- Demonstrate understanding of the social and physical world in their artistic expression.

For me it is either SCAD, or Ringling

If you're hell bent on studying transportation design (along with an entertainment bent), why not at least go to the schools that funnel you INTO the business easier such as Art Center and the College for Creative Studies in Detroit. Look at the majority of prominent cad designers out there that are from these two major programs.

well, ACCD is the ultimate choice.. the holy grail~ but so is the COST!!!
i don't think i will ever be able to afford it... so im thinking of CA's atelier n cogswell. btw, both are much less costly. MUCH.

Go to a school for YOUR education, not for his companionship.
