Maybe you’re a high school student who loves art but doesn’t know how to get a career in the creative. Or perhaps you’re someone who wants to change or expand your existing career. If you aren’t one of the above, feel free to look for another blog to read.

If you are indeed looking for a fresh start, or at least a change in direction, you need to know where to look to further your education. Firstly, try checking out local universities and colleges in your general area. Do you they have the program you want, are you willing to travel to go to an institution that has your program.

What exactly do you want to do relating to art/design? Is it fine art? Design? What kind of design; there’s illustrative, graphic, motion, exhibit for starters. And the list goes on.

So the next step is to get your applications and build your portfolio.

So once you know what you want to do and where, all that’s left is to hand in your application and portfolio.

Here are a couple of websites regarding art/design schools that you can check out if you’re interested.
