    You would need to look for a graduate school of art. A seminary is a school for religious training.

    Perhaps you are looking for a Christian University that has an art program? I am not quite sure what you are looking for. Aren't you currently at the Art Institute of California - San Fransisco? Are you looking to transfer?

    I am, but I'm getting tired of all the CHristian slander that goes on here-its too ridiculous for me to retort; yet they do that on purpose because they believe there so right that they don't have to argue rationally in order to get their point across. I getting tired of Easter being referred to as "Zombie Jesus Day," even if it was one person, as well as all the other ignorant statements. But what I hate the most is that I don't have, or can't remember, the right way to minister to these people. And I can't find all the other Christians in the school who can help support me since we arn't organized. I/They don't even have the time to minister to. Overall, I want a school where I don't have to make non-christian friends. It'll save me a lot of grief.

    Are you looking for something in California, or are you willing to move?

    Yeah, as preriquesites, but they don't even sound like classes that prepare you for animation...

    I am guessing that very few schools do prepare you for animation. Am I correct?

    Bob Jones U. is way across the country from you, buth they have several art majors. I don't know what they have in the way of animation, but you might want to check it out anyway. They do have a world-class art museum there, also. [​IMG]

    There are two seminaries here in the Washington DC area that offer a focus on art and faith. Wesley Theological Seminary (United Methodist) has a program on worship and the arts, led by Catherine Kapikian, a very well respected artist. There is a studio, etc.

    The new (and almost accredited) Baptist institution, John Leland Center for Theological Studies, includes a "Leland and the Arts" program, which provides opportunities for artistic expression in a spiritual context. But there is no studio.

    Oh how creative. They should open the windows once in a while, all the paint thinner fumes tend to build up.

    Some years ago, BJU did have a major animator (worked for Disney or something like that) working for them. They were launching out into animation and did some animation films or videos. I haven’t heard anything along this line recently. Of course, their cinema and art departments are top-rated. It would be worthwhile to check into BJU.

    I ain't being a thorn in your side, but if I recall right, the purpose of college is training, and the way to learn how to witness to people like "artists" is to practice.

    It all worked out for me in the end in other ways, but from one perspective, I wish I had worked more on dealing with non-Christians in the secular universities I went to instead of waiting until after I got out to try to learn how.

    How much longer do you have to go before you're done at San Francisco? You can have more impact on the godless there than the godly in another school will impact you, even if the impact is only realized years later.

    God bless either way you choose, as long as it's His.
