    Very very expensive, but I hear it's worth it for any artist who's willing to put in the work and time.

    Yes, it is expensive, but they bring in good opportunities and people to talk to. The classes are useful (mostly) and you learn a lot very quickly.

    Utrecht is a local art supplies store close to school that has really good discounts for students and a lot of times you can get quality supplies on sale. Biggby coffee also has weekly discounts on an assortment of their drinks for people who like to drink coffee or enjoy specialty drinks. The school bookstore on campus has discounts at different times of the year for students on supplies which is helpful also.
