In Topic: The Art Institute of Portland Question?

14 December 2011 - 02:08 AM

ok! Lol, thank you everybody for your feedback. It looks like this is what I am deciding...

There is a ton of resources online right now, I will get a good solid understanding of software...I can do this, I don't believe I need a class as long as I have tutorials. As for Fundamentals of design, I believe this will come with some practice and later If I need I'll take some classes.

But for now, I will study at home...I have a strong passion for this stuff anyways so it come easily.

Now onto another question... I'll just post a new post.

Thanks Everybody for the great input, and now I can save my money for the time being, and not jump into debt :)

Peace

p.s. I'll check out PNCA for designing fundamentals and such.

well let me reintroduce a new question. It seems that the Art Institute will not be a good idea...

So on that note some recommendations on other options?

gnomon? SCAD? and any others? Also do you think I can get good enough training say Gnomon online?

Great responses and thanks for the help. I'm glad I am asking these questions at this board.

Thanks everybody for the posts, this is really helping.

I guess my overall question now is,

Will this school offer me what I need to be successfull in this field? For example the equipment they have to offer (based off of the curriculum), or would I be better off at a school like SCAD?

Thank you so much for your response. I will take what you said into consideration. For the Record I do not have a bachelors degree yet, only my general ed classes + everything else that I have studied along the way that won't transfer.

About what I would like to do, I would like to be a great vfx artist. Graphic design would probably hold me off until I get that great paying VFX job with some movie... of course this is in the future...and yes this is a dream at the moment...but definitely attainable.

Any other responses would help out greatly, as I am new to this whole thing.
