    Art schools are educational institutions where students typically study visual or tangible art forms, such as drawing or sculpting. The current model for fine arts education likely began in France, when schools broke away from the tradition of master and apprentice and instead offered classes at organized institutes of learning. Art schools are found at all levels of education, from elementary and secondary schools, to college and university programs. Colleges offering degrees in arts may exist as private institutions focusing on art and design, where students learn to sculpt, draw, paint, and animate. Alongside these classic media of expression, they may also study graphic design, fashion, theatre performance, or print media such as photography. These schools generally offer solely courses in art, though some may require students to take other courses to receive a rounder education. Private art institutes are often highly selective. Many public universities offer design programs as separate colleges or departments, and may include programs such as architecture and interior design. While generally independent from the liberal arts requirements of the university, students in these programs may still be required to fulfill courses outside of design and arts. Finally, students may receive art degrees at the college and university level, where their associate's, bachelor's or post graduate degree, typically in art or fine art, is part of the school's liberal arts program. High school students interested in pursuing a degree in fine arts, whether in graphic design, fashion, photography, or sculpting, should begin by inquiring with their high school counselor. Graduates can search online for the art program of their choice, or speak with a counselor at a local college or university. With the array of art schools available, there are opportunities for every artist to study in the creative world.
