Or people in Ontario to be precise. Is there any hope here for art schools? I need a degree for a work visa down the road and I want to put myself 100% into art, so I'm getting an art degree.
Any schools that give you any internship/art employment opportunities at all? OCAD? Sheridan? Seneca? George-Brown?
You get and internship at the end of third year in Sheridan's animation program. You get lots of help getting one too, so long as you apply yourself a bit it's basically guaranteed. The program's 4 years long and the BAA you get let's you work in the states ez (granted you can find the work)
Gross!! Nah, just kidding. I'm only familiar with the animation program at Sheridan, sorry. One of my roommates was in the illustration program, but I don't think they get an internship at any point. They do still get their BAA to let them work in the states, though.
I'm only considering this to get a work visa, honestly. I really wish I knew if there was a way to relocate to the US without a degree.
Lots of companies advertise that they offer relocation assistance. Can they pull strings to bypass shit like that?
I'm considering this all the time...
Make an easy, quite steady 500$ every month freelancing. make another 300-400$ almost passively from e-commerce affiliate marketing bs stuff...
The key is to reduce your cost of living to the point where you have a lot of time to keep getting better and doing the work YOU love, while expanding your internet presence / brand in order to slowly shift towards making a living doing that very work you LOVE to make.
Any thoughts on Humber College? Some vocational college here in Toronto. It has a 2-year program in Visual and Digital Arts and I can just work for 6 more years in a relevant field and I am eligible for an H1-B visa.
You think it might have any advantages to the shitty liberal/social justice art university here (OCAD)?
