Should I go to college if I want to be an artist?
While there are no formal education requirements for artists, entering an undergraduate degree program might be one way to develop your skills. If you’re a seasoned artist with a bachelor’s degree, you might consider a graduate program to gain skills for an arts-related career.
Do grades matter in art school?
Grades and SAT scores still matter.
Art schools want to know that their students are serious about education. By looking at your grades, colleges can tell what kind of student you’ll be if you attend their school. Even the best portfolio can’t win over an admissions committee if the student’s grades are sub-par.
