I forked out a lot of hard earned cashApr 18 2009Design Arts - Industrial Design/Graphic Design/etc
I forked out a lot of hard earned cash. It seems, looking at the student body, this school caters to young moldable kids. Though they may have raw talent they appear to have wealthy parents and no real vision other than what the instructor demands. I can see them finding the vision through the school work. Not to say that there are the Blessed ones who are there just to perfect their all ready amazing path, it's just that it's better to be unmolded than having been molded by yourself first before entering AAU.

Dont wait for your classes to teach you everything, do some personal research on the expected knowledge you'll learn, teachers like this and it betters you by being a few steps ahead.

Just be very ambitious and self directed and you'll get a lot out of it. No school can make the artist; the artist creates their own world.
