A career in the field of art, whether in fine art, art history, or performance arts (just to name a few), combines immense creativity and talent. To enhance learning and create more job opportunities, an education is important. Many of the best art schools in the world are in the United Kingdom and the United States.
Royal Academy of Arts
As the only school in Britain offering a postgraduate program in art, the Royal Academy of Arts in London is also the oldest in the country. This program includes royal academician professors along with visiting artists, critics and writers. Students not only receive lectures from these individuals, they also have the opportunity to work one-on-one with them. Study is combined from many studio art mediums like painting, sculpture, digital media, print, and installation and time-based art. The Royal Academy boasts the oldest purpose-built life drawing studio in the nation and utilises new technology such as digital media workstations. The school has a very competitive admissions process due to these unique characteristics, small class-sizes and the fact that it charges no tuition fees.

Rhode Island School of Design
Ranked as the number one fine arts school in the United States by US News & World Report, the Rhode Island School of Design is a private, coeducational institution. It has 16 art programs which are offered at both undergraduate and graduate level. There are also three undergraduate degrees in foundation arts (drawing, two-dimensional and three-dimensional design) and three undergraduate liberal arts degrees.

That, combined with its reputation and extensive list of majors and courses, along with its size (about 1,920 undergraduate students and 370 graduate students from 44 countries) put this art school in high demand.
