There are many fine arts schools to consider when selecting an institution to prepare the student for an artistic career, whether in the technical process of expression or as a performer on the stage or screen. A student may also study in a wide variety of online programs, offering flexibility of time as well as location.
The Academy of Art University, established in 1929 is the largest private art and design school in the United States. This school offers fully accredited AA, BFA and MFA degrees, certificate and pre-college programs and continuing art education courses on campus or online, in twelve majors. The instructors at the Academy of Art work in their fields; the directors direct, the effects instructors work at effects companies and the acting teachers act. The faculty there has the reputation of considering graduates to be colleagues, rather than simply graduating students looking for work.

The Los Angeles Film School is another of the fine arts schools that provides an education in filmmaking by making films. In the initial week of the school’s one year film program, students have a camera in their hands, and by the end of the year they’ll have made more films than most students make in four years. The Los Angeles Film School’s campus is in the heart of Hollywood at 6363 Sunset Boulevard, on the historic corner of Sunset and Vine. The faculty also works in the film industry, teaching cinematography, directing, editing, producing, production design, screenwriting and sound design.
