I've been working really hard trying to improve on my own for months now and I am content with the results I've been getting. But I am unsure if what I am doing is enough or even towards the right direction. My family has been encouraging me to at least get some kind of formal training at a credited institute and I think it might be a positive step forward. I usually work better in a high stress environment and my daily routine right now is pretty relaxing. I am naturally lazy. I need a good ass-kicking.
After a couple hours of research, I feel like everything is completely out of my reach. All the schools are insanely expensive. Even with financial help, I definitely can't afford $35,000 annual tuition. After doing a bit more research, a lot of professionals are even against art schools. I hope someone that has been through this and can point me a direction to follow. I am in need of a guidance and any bit will help. What should I do?
