What institution should a future star of fine arts or design (fashion design schools) give preference to then? There are so many art institutes and universities all over the country and that makes the process of selection far from being easy. Below you will find some facts and tips to help you make the correct choice. As a rule, these things are not widely discussed but a prospective student of an art school should carefully consider them before making his or her mind:

Home, Sweet Home

One of the important things to take care of in the first place is the question of probable homesickness. This problem should not be underestimated. Just consider the situation when one potentially strays outside one's comfort zone and needs an opportunity to run home any time one misses a favorite meal. That would be a hard thing to achieve if the distance between you and sweet home is something like a couple thousand miles, don't you think so? One should realize that for many individuals availability of familiar home surroundings is an important condition for functioning at peak productivity. Persons depending on familiar surroundings to feel comfortable should seriously think about looking for an art school in close vicinity. On the other hand, students inclined to exploration, making new friend and so on may feel it much more to their liking leaving home and going out of the home state in search for a fine art education and career opportunities.

Power of "Activism" is Something to be Respected and Recognized, Take it into Consideration

How do you feel about so called "bleeders", also known as "bleeding liberals" or "bleeding hearts" or "bleeding radicals"? The problem is that art schools and institutes in particular have become strangely attractive to such "activists" recently and "activism" can be found in this environment in more abundance than seem to be fare in comparison with other educational institutions. In principle there should be nothing wrong with "activism". But actually it is not always so. Because of very draining nature of activities of "bleeders" they have proved to be a kind of stifling factor to unengaged creative attitude of students who are more interested in developing their skill than in political correctness. What a shame would it be when you, after paying a considerable amount of money in order to enjoy benefits of a prestigious art institute, find yourself distracted to wasting your time on so called "activities"? From the very start be very careful not to be engaged into "activities" or be associated with them in any way, think about your reputation, it is easy to be spoiled and difficult to repair.

If You Cannot Do the Thing, You Can Always Try to Teach Others How to Do It

It may be not a very just statement in universal sense, but the truth is that in many cases it happens to be correct when applied to the environment of fine art and design institutions and their teaching personnel. Personally I have come to this conclusion and consider it to be very true. It is difficult to find another branch of education with such an abundance of professors who are simply bitter, washed-up has-beens or, more often, never-weres. In other words, complete losers. They failed to build a successful carriers in fine arts and design related areas, and all is left to them is being teachers barely making a living. They are very much attracted to budding proteges and simply love to have one on their hands. This is a risky situation, since the objective of a bitter teacher - conscious or unconscious - is to finally destroy the creative spirit of a new student in the art class. Be very carefully not to come under the influence of one of them (the same as with the "bleeders"). You deserve to get the most from the art school you paid hefty funds to attend, keep true to your objectives and creativity!
