What are the benefits of going to art school vs self teaching by doing and some moderate book instruction? Certainly its costly and you will make many mistakes but not nearly as costly as going to art sxhool. wont you potentially develop a style entirely your own?

Books won't tell you what you're doing wrong specifically and how to fix it.

I don't care enough to list the other things, but the biggest difference between art school and self teaching is the critique which can make or break your journey.

You can do everything you can do in a school on your own. But -

This. Having an instructor push you to do better is insanely helpful. Art school makes a big deal out of group critiques, but my experience has been that it's a waste of time because the professors almost universally give the best critique(there was that one "digital isn't art" guy but even he wasn't completely full of shit).

Art school will also push you out of your comfort zone because you'll have to grow to meet the challenges of your classes.

I'm currently attending art school, so ama I guess.

at school:
You can form real life relationships at school.
You get professional and fairly trustworthy guidance how to navigate the sea of information (there are more books or tutorials than you can work through in a lifetime).
>>
Don't need either if you're talented.
>>
If you're untalented, go to art school.

This. I'm self taught and I'm making $100k at a major company. My co-workers and I make fun of the losers who did go.

I went to an arschool for art fundamentals and I shit you not it is 100% full of crap. I drew 3hrs everyday for a year prior to attending the school and I learned jack shit from there. The only good thing is dat I got hitches all the time cuz I'm the best in the class. By the end of the year most of my classmates still can't draw from life, Jesus fucking Christ mate
