My D is hoping to find an affordable art school that doesn’t only focus on contemporary and modern- she loves and has experience with traditional oil work. Prefer not to be in NYC - probably too much for her.
It’s best to ask on the Art majors forum. There’s lots to read there as well. https://talk.collegeconfidential.com/visual-arts-film-majors/
If your daughter might be ready for NYC at a later time, she could look into Pratt’s more intimate, lower cost, 2-year program, PrattMWP. I think she could transfer anywhere from this program, actually, but admission to Pratt’s main campus is guaranteed.
