Artist who were ignored in high school

In high school some students know what they want to do in life others go into high school and figure out what they want to major in, and some do not know even after. For me when I knew what I wanted to major in when I was in elementary school. I always had a passion for art, I of course changed the type of art that I wanted to do but I still knew what I wanted to do. I remember in junior year we were starting the application process for college ( looking up colleges) I recall going to my college adviser at that time, asking her if she knew any arts school or if she had a list of art schools. Mindful I previously already look at schools  but I was not one hundred percent sure so I turned to a professional that the school presented me with ( using my resources ). She told me she did not know anything about art schools it was not something she ever looked into. I just want to know……..why, why is not something you have looked into. My school was a technology school plus they were the only school that offered medical classes. I remember the only focus was on ROTC, medical, science, the basic typical studies, but never art. So she only paid attention to the colleges that fall under those categories. I am not sure why she only paid attention to students who fall under those categories, the whole point of a college adviser is to help students to find colleges to suit their interest. I do not understand what is the point to have college adviser if they do not have look into college that cover different type of majors. Not every student wants to major in in the same category, I understand that the percentage of art majors is small but that does not mean ignore them, we are just as important. I never said anything than because I honestly did not have a voice then I was also shocked at her response. I do not know about any other schools but, I hope other college advisers are helping art majors find a school.
