Question by Magnetic Zero: What are some good photography institutes?
I would like to attend Brooks Institute of Photography, but I need some other schools to apply to incase I don’t get in to Brooks. I don’t want to put all my eggs in one basket, so what are some “safe schools” I could consider?

Question by Brian: does the “National Endowment of the Arts and Humanities Act” support art programs in public schools?
I am writing an essay in regards to Lyndon B Johnson, and his “Great Society” initiative. I have to pick 3 things he promoted, advocated, and signed into law, that greatly impacted the modern world (i.e. myself) today. I have already picked The Voting Rights Act, The Elementary and Secondary Education Act, but I need to know if the “National Endowment of the Arts and Humanities Act” supports art, music, history classes, etc in public schools? I downloaded the PDF of the piece of legislation, and it says in Article 9:

“Americans should receive in school, background and preparation in the arts and humanities to enable them to recognize and appreciate the aesthetic dimensions of our lives, the diversity of excellence that comprises our cultural heritage, and artistic and scholarly expression.”

but it doesn’t necessarily say “this act will fund music in school”. Ya know? I have also read online that conservatives have tried to abolish this act and remove its funding, which I’m trying to directly correlate to the fact that Music and Art programs are being cut from public schools. Any help, with reliable sources would be MUCH MUCH appreciated. Thank you!!
actually, I just found this section within the piece of legislation…:

“954a. Access to the arts through support of education
(a) Purposes
The purposes of this section are -
(1) to increase accessibility to the arts through providing education to all
Americans, including diverse cultures, urban and rural populations by
encouraging and developing quality education in the arts at all levels, in
conjunction with programs of nonformal education for all age groups, with
formal systems of elementary, secondary, and postsecondary education;
(2) to develop and stimulate research to teach quality education in the arts; and
(3) to encourage and facilitate the work of artists, arts institutions, and Federal,
State, regional, and local agencies in the area of education in the arts.”

is this evidence irrefutable for my argument in correlating the republicans’ attempt at removing music and art in school??

Question by Lilith Morana: do fan characters belong in the fan art category?
and by fan character, i mean for example; a Sonic fan character. i, personally, see a big difference between Original Characters, and Fan Characters. so would that mean a fan characters belongs in the fan art category?

Best answer:

Answer by Nahum
Are you talking about deviantART? Well, you’re a fan, and you’re making art about the series, so why not? They should be able to tell the difference between OCs (the term is more often used to refer to characters made in the style of the series, but not an actual canon character) and canon.

Until they rethink their categories, there isn’t a better place.

Question by me: I am from Australia and I want to go to college in America next year. How much money will I need to save?
In Australia we have HECS, so you don’t have to pay anything until after you graduate and earn a certain wage each year. You just have to pay for books and stuff, then pay the course fees later.

I always hear in American movies about “saving for college”, and it wasn’t until hating my uni degree I decided that the course I want to do is overseas in America. I don’t have any money saved, and I was wondering if you have anything like student loans or if you have to pay your whole college fee upfront?

I want to get into California Institute of Arts. Does anyone know how much money I will need to save before I apply?

You need to write to this school and ask these questions. And you also need to ask what kind of living arrangements are available.

Question by Miscellaneous: Does it make sense to go to Vanderbilt University even if you’re not interested in meds?
I really like it for its location and its take on arts, and it has all the programs that im looking for. But I have absolutely no interest in the medical field. So everyone always asks me why I want to go there, like I’m making a mistake by applying to a “med school”. Why is that such a big deal?
No, I’m not going to become a nurse or doctor at all. Thats my point: There’s more to Vanderbilt than just its medical school.

Best answer:

Answer by Shooting for the stars
You mean you plan to be a nurse or doctor, something in the medical field but have no interest? That doesn’t make sense, your career should be something you are interested in because you would do it your whole life….

oh and you would probably take someone else’s spot who really wanted to do medicine! >:O

Question by Heather: How many days do art institute students attend class?
I plan on getting a degree in “Baking and Pastry” and “Culinary management”. If I take both at the same time, how many days would I go a week? Also, should I take both at the same time, or should I wait to one?

Best answer:

Answer by jannsody
A word to the wise about the “art institute” that there are A LOT of negative posts by former students about the private overpriced For-profit school at these consumer sites:

-

-

- and can search.

Please instead consider the more affordable local community college or even county vo-tech school as long as the program is accredited within the industry.

This site is supposed to have accredited programs in culinary: and can click “schools” and then “postsecondary programs” or such.
