When the Student Is Ready, the Teacher Will Appear

Art Schools

These are real groups of accomplished artists. They are not colleges or universities, there is no degree at the end. But you do not need a degree to be a successful artist/illustrator you need the skills, knowledge and a good portfolio. The degree helps everywhere else. So if higher education is not for you. Look at these as an addition or alternative.

Online tutorials and learning. These choices do not have a curriculum and leave it up to you to get value out of their material. All use a subscription or purchase price for their tutorials. A search on YouTube will provide a lot of material. Some is very good like Proko. But you are subject to the algorithm if you are just letting Youtube ‘feed you’.

Professional Societies

Though not schools, they are professional networks to help you connect.
