I have never attended the "Art institute" but I have heard good and bad about them,you will have to ask a former student about that. I will tell you that most folks here might recommend the "Gnomon school or one like it. I hope that helped. I will say I find the art institute overpriced.

The Art Institutes are bad. At their best, they give you a mediocre education at a vastly inflated price; more frequently, they're a total wast of time and money. If you're looking for an MFA animation program in the Bay Area, Academy of Art is a much better program (though they're certainly not without their own problems).
