How to Survive Art School

Having attended art school and graduated with high GPAs, I can share with you some good advice. Through school, there are some basic things you can do to stay on your game.

Get a planner/sketchbook

Keep a book where you store all of your notes, due dates, assignments and so on inside of. Let this be a catch all of the information for you. If you can a single place to store your vitals you will never go searching for the scrap piece of paper again.


You need a sturdy place to store all of your materials and supplies. If you are a commuter, then this is especially important. Your art supplies are your life line. Having a secure place to stash your goods will keep you focused on your craft and not where you last had your t-square.
