|Studies say that the most expensive schools aren’t Ivy League schools, they’re art schools. Is something wrong with this picture?Here’s what I see: most graduates of art schools wind up with merely moderate skills to navigate their future but with massive debt.
Young artists who go to these schools start out life standing in a huge financial hole.
If you look at the major art schools- great places where I have taught and have friends who teach- artists come out with six figure debts. The education may be great, but in today’s world- is it worth the cost?
I started the SAW because I believe our artists deserve a high quality education without that Ivy League price tag.
