I'm a student about to embark on the wonderful world of art/design school, as well as the editor of an online zine interested in knowing what people who have more experience than I do have to say about this topic.

Does one really have to go to an art school/university in order to have a successful business in their chosen field? Can a person just really teach themselves all they need to know from books or the internet or crafty communities? I'm sure with the growth in sites that offer free tutorials, etc, this phenomenon must be more widespread. What if someone can't afford further education? Is it that they're doomed to being less popular, considered less 'accomplished', and generally less satisfied than the person who has had formal education?

It'd be really interesting to see where this topic goes.
