Hello, My name is B. and I'm here to warn others about Art Instruction Schools. In my exprience with the school I was drawn in by their commercial, which I did call and recieved an art test. To shock I received a call within 2-3 weeks stating that I was one of the highest scoring people and that I would eligible for a scholarship; but when the recruiter came to see me it quickly changed into I was 1 point off from being able to get the scholarship. Me being an artist I was still interested in the program, and due to the misunderstanding the recruiter offered me a deal. The agreement, (The contract we signed), stated I was only to pay 130.00$ a month for 23 months.

I started with the school, and at first had no problems. Assignments came and they were easy to me. One day they called me and said I was missing assignments. So I had to do 3 assignments all over again, and thats when the issuses started. The school is supose to provide the supplies, which was one of the main reasons I signed up. But everytime I need something it was like pulling teeth to get. The customer service people were rude everytime I called in. The time has finally come for them to honor the contract for 23months for 130.00$ and they refuse to honor it. They wont contact the gentlemen ( their recruiter) who I signed the contract with even thou he stated if I had any problems call the school and they'll contact him, nor will they admit their fault in the situation. Good thing I'm great with paper work and I still have the contract I signed. Finally after a lengthy process they agreed to honor their contract, while still being rude. 

I never exprience such rude customer service, nor such a battle to honor a contract that was given to me by rep. from their school. In closing I would not recommend this school to anyone.Everything that was promised was a battle to receive, from getting my supplies, to speaking to my instructors, down to honoring a simple contract in black & white. To be honest the only problem I didn't have was the instructors who graded my assignments, in which I fear now because of the hassle I had to go throught to make them honor the contract, (Which they agreed to honor but have not done so yet) they will become a problem also, them and the fact  I didnt want to waste months of work is the only reason I stayed enrolled with the school. And NO, I am not just some angry person who wants to put out a bad report just for kicks. I'm a hard working student who even received awards from the school for my art works. I have all the proof, my contract and I know they record the calls so you can listen to the conversations where they were rude to my mother and I. I have my bank statements to prove I pay on time everytime. It is just a horrible program if you'd like to be treated with respect, or want them to honor a contract. ITS A RIPOFF!
