Hello, I have been looking at various arts schools, building up a portfolio and all of that over the past few months and TAD is one of my options in terms of education. I'm pretty familiar with the program as a whole in terms of reliability and I've taken a few of the On Demand classes as well so I have an idea of what the classroom is like. I'm also planning to take part in the Explore program that will be offered. My main concern at this point is what I am paying for specifically. I have seen the materials list and from what I understand I'll be purchasing everything from digital painting programs to easels. So am I essentially going to be paying $30,000-45,000 for instruction? I understand that one would also gain access to the PODs but for someone such as myself who isn't located near any of these that would only raise the money I'd be investing into the program.
It may be a lack of knowledge on my part and something such as this may be normal in terms of what one is expected to pay but yeah, it would be great if someone could shine some light on the matter.
Thank you for your responses
