California is the most populous state in the U.S., and the third largest (Alaska and Texas are bigger). Over a quarter of a million students graduate from a California college or university each year, and many of these students quickly find jobs in the state’s robust and varied economy.

The film and TV production industries are one of the mainstays of California’s economy; Los Angeles and Hollywood are the places to be for aspiring directors, actors, set designers, etc. Excellent opportunities abound for all types of artists in this state, since financial aid, quality apprenticeships, and supporting grants are widely available. With four major cities throughout the state, there is an abundance of art schools in California to choose from.
