Hey I'm a 15 year old kid who wants to be a concept artist when I'm older, I'm a freshman in high school and I'm curios as to what classes i should take in order for me to get into a good art school. So far in my sophomore year i'm going to take AP European history Art classes (of course!) and im trying to get into enriched English but I don't think that will happen. That and I draw non-stop almost all the time and I'll doodle anytime I can get during class.Im also planning to take advanced art classes at my local college in my senior year. But is all this enough to become a concept artist or is to much? Oh and I would also like to know about any good art colleges that might be in my area, I live near Santa Monica, Los Angeles.Any input what so ever would be much appreciated!
this site just caught my eye and yesterday and I figured I had to join ( so yeah i am a 'noob'). This site is pretty sweet.
Sounds like you're on the right track so far. Keep drawing a lot from life. Do some painting. Take some drawing and color courses, if you can. Look into life drawing courses, if there are resources available to you. Taking classes at college your senior year is a smart idea--I did that.
Also, get more involved here on CA.org. It's an *AWESOME* resource!
The sheer fact that you have the passion to draw non-stop is a serious plus.
Now look at what the pros are doing and try emulating them. You're trying to get into a profession that's fueled by a passion to create so keep creating. It never hurts to start looking into what and where your idols are doing and how they got there. This is a good of a place as any to learn and ask.
Welcome to the site.
take as many art classes as you can find, try some workshops offered for teens, and most importantly find a personal art teacher. teachers at highschool(at least every one i went to, bout 3) are trained to teach all feilds of art and have little time to specialize in any medium or style of their own. personal art instructors have a main focus YOU!!! they are oft times working in the feild. they specialize in varying mediums watercolor, charcoal, oils, etc... and teach small classes that they can devote their entire attention to and push you as hard as you need to be pushed.
