how do you think art schools weigh your art vs your grades or course load?
art schools really dont care about your grades, from what ive heard from artists already in college. they really just want to see your portfolio! during the sva precollege program, there was a presentation for applying to the school and i remember the representative saying to not worry about grades too much (in terms of actually getting into the school). i also talked to a calarts student and they told me they didnt even send in their sat scores… i feel like grades are only important when applying to academic schools and for scholarships.
