There are many very good art schools in America, but if you live near Chicago, or anywhere in the Midwest there's only one truly great art school to consider, my alma mater, the American Academy of Art. I've had, a 36 year long successful career as an Illustrator/ Designer/ Creative Director/ and Product Developer all thanks to the foundation I got from this school. The instructors were amazing and wonderful! It was the best decision I have ever made and I give them a giant THANK YOU! Keep up the great work AAA !
