The world of art and design is pretty broad. And i've been confused as of late as to which classes i should take and what paths i should choose. I've seen alotta people on here who frequently talk about apparel design, which is why im here. To ask, what courses did you guys take and what degrees did you need? Currently for me, i am taking vocational courses for Graphic Design, which in turn i recieve a Certificate for. So i guess i would be a certified "graphic designer" But its not an AA degree to my understanding. Im taking these courses in hopes that they'll give the skills i need to start designing t-shirts or maybe even running my own line. So my question to you people who been through it all is..Would a Certificate be sufficient? I mean, does it have to be really extensive schooling? Because i can totally understand that the idea of wanting to design tshirts for a living is really pretty hit or miss. So im trying to be realistic, If that dream failed, Could i fall back on this "graphic design certificate" and still have something to go for and make a good living off of?
