Major: Fine Arts - Painting/Sculpture/Photography/etc (This Major's Salary over time)

I, unlike many students of todays middle class parents, chose Paier because I thought it was less of a financial burden for my parents and would supply me with the technical background that I then percieved as being important in becoming a "artiste".
The school did open my eyes to the various art related fields such as illustration,advertising,etc which is great if you haven't decided where your focus is but if you know which direction you are headed.
After 4 years there I would say:
Paier once had a good rep for technique and technical training but trys to imprint a"certain" academic style, thus repressing a students artistic "nature" or own individual style.

When I attended Paier the "god" of the school was Wyeth, and I preferred Warhol. This preference was not well recieved. I would not recommend Paier for a Fine Art career, unless you want to be stuck painting in the schools broom closet. You can do that at home and develop your own individuality which is more important in the real "ART" world if you have the focus.
I recommend looking at Lyme Art Academy if you want "classical" training in "fine"art otherwise, if you are really want to be a "serious" artist, the sheepskin is really worthless unless you prefer making money over art.

It's your choice! …but remember,…your art lives long after you do. chose well.
I will say personally that I have found that after 30 years Paier Management has shown little growth and even less in maturity in the real world.
