By Peterson's Staff updated on Thursday, January 31, 2013

If you’re already a creative person, attending art or design school is the perfect way to hone your craft. Art school allows you to gain exposure to many different mediums, in order for you to find your niche.

Exploring Art School

When looking at art colleges, consider the types of programs they offer. An art college can have majors in all areas of visual arts ranging from sculpting, to painting, to drawing, to illustration.

In addition to art school, design school is also a great option, which approaches art from a more commercial perspective. You can find information on design colleges that provide degrees in areas such as digital design, graphic design, fashion design, and more.

Art and design colleges enhance your natural abilities and provide a credential to back up your talent, leading you to not only a fulfilling career, but also one that can bring others enjoyment. However, finding the right art school can be a difficult but rewarding process. Start now by taking a look at the schools on the right or by using our search function above.
