If you are completely sure that art is

Jul 12 2011Fine Arts - Painting/Sculpture/Photography/etc
If you are completely sure that art is your path in life, RISD is the place to go. You will be pushed to your limit and grow substantially as an artist. RISD has a great reputation in the art world and many job connections for its graduates. Unfortunately, for those who are interested in art as well as academics, RISD lacks in the liberal arts division. Many art history classes are a waste of time and money. Personally, I feel like I have sacrificed a good academic education for a good art eduction. As an institution, RISD has its problems. Tuition is extremely high and financial aid is sparse. RISD is not very organized throughout the departments and always manages to bill the students for mysterious costs and charges.

Anyone willing to pay such a ridiculous amount

May 26 2008Art & Design Department
Anyone willing to pay such a ridiculous amount of money for art school is highly dedicated, and you learn mostly from competition with your classmates, not so much from your teachers. It's a great environment for people who are certain that they want to be designers, though they concentrate more on the conceptual than the real world business.

RISD does not help you to get a job, though the name means a lot to many people. Many people are snooty and pretentious, and highly spoiled.
