Noah Bradley’s “Don’t Go to Art School” (and “The $10k Ultimate Art Education”)

“Don’t Go to Art School” by Noah Bradley

It’s not exactly a neutral article, but it’s an incredibly good one – Noah Bradley’s blog on why aspiring commercial artists shouldn’t go to school for it not only calls out many of the painfully common problems with art schools (especially those with newer types of art such as game art-specific curriculums), but takes it a step further and provides an incredibly strong list of resources outside the college to look into instead, ranging from free online talks and tutorials to books, mentorships and excellent subscription-based tutorials. It’s a great, quick and informative read, and an excellent compass for some of the best paid non-traditional education you can get if you’re ready to start pursuing paid learning.
