I read Seedling's advice about getting the most out of your art education...
but what if I cannot exactly follow his advice as much as I hoped I would?
My situation is, I'm taking this course that has several disciplines which are all counted as a major. It has web design, photography, video production, 2D and 3D animation, computer aided visualization and design all tightly squeezed into one year divided into three terms, excluding the "fundamentals" they seem to teach which are color rendering, free hand drawing, technical drawing, art history subjects spread out into another year plus my first year for general education subjects.
So I pretty much think the school sucks. I can't argue my way out of a subject that I "need" to take, as dictated by the school AND the Commission on Higher Education (the governing body of both public and private higher education). Where I live, the art education is not as good as it is in places like...ACCD.
What should I do? I'm very unhappy. I feel like my time is being wasted in 50% unnecessary education in my course when I really should be studying art fundamentals that would get me a good place in the entertainment/games industry. I can't exactly move to another school because I'm in my third of four years, (where the majors JUST started, like I said, it's squeezed into one year) and my family is..financially unstable.
