Drae, you're right about the Oogie program...UGH! What I find curious is that in their listing of top schools, places like Harvard are first and then the dedicated art schools are last on their list! Hmmm...makes me wonder if their target market is kids who really do want to pursue art, or kids with an interest in art that might use their interest as a hook to get into these universities and study something else. Also, what happens to these kids when they are expected to find their artistic voice and they no longer have a coach? Finally, I see that the program offers scholarships for their class fees, but only to those who already have "exceptional drawing skills" and high SATs. It makes me think they need those kids to show statistics on their website; seems Oogie "pays" those kids to attend in the form of scholarships, but they'd probably get in to the schools they choose anyway! Oh well, I am probably cynical about these programs; I never sent my kids to any kind of SAT prep, either!
