I'm an 18 year old college student. I much believe in the traditional aspects of art and to build upon the accumulated knowledge from the past, and I dislike modern art and almost everything about it.
I applied to Falmouth university to do their fine art course so I could focus on painting. It's the most "traditional" I could find but just like every other university, they support and teach modernistic views.
I've been reading about ateliers, and there a 2 here in England and they offer everything I am looking for. So now i'm thinking, should I study at an atelier? I have an interview at Falmouth on the 11th but now i'm having serious doubts if it's going to be worth it, even if the university is highly reccomended. Because all I want to do is become a painter (or even sculpture), and i'm unsure if a university is the right choise for that in this post-modern art world.
I was wondering if anybody here could help me find an answer... university or atelier? I know an atelier will help equip me with the skills I want to persue my desire to become a painter, but a university will provide me with a degree and more likely chance of getting a job.
