We're putting the spotlight on University of Pennsylvania and Pennsylvania Academy of the Arts student Lindsay Rapp (aka *LindsayRapp), whose incredible traditional art style and hard work has earned her several scholarships, placements in art competitions, and features in magazines. We reached out to Lindsay to get her perspective on balancing student life with artistic endeavors and what advice she has to current or prospective students going into the arts.

Read Interview

We held three live interactive discussions with professors from the prestigious Otis College of Art and Design, University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and New York University (NYU) Steinhardt who answered your questions and offered advice on how to attain the art education you've always dreamed of.  Pick your favorite topic or view them all!

Well, I'm just 12 but I am worried about what to study, I like to draw anime and manga, even create stories, I love any kind of art, love singing but I don't really like to read music, just play. I also like to animate, but what I am worried about is how to make business, get started in work, well paid jobs, and how to make legal contracts, and all sort of business parts. From the comments up here, or maybe down here, I see they really don't teach you that, I've always been worried at what I would study. I need help, please comment if you have anything that actually might help....I just want a job that I like, But will art be a good decision?
