    For commercial art -- The Art Center School of Design in Pasadena. Ask any commercial artist. It is well known for graphic and commercial arts.

    My first boyfriend -- an amazing artist -- went there and landed a great job after graduation. You are right in the LA Basin so the job contacts are incomparable. It's expensive but worth it.

    It depends on what art you want to do. USC is very good with musical arts, University of the Arts Institute in SF is very good with graphics and art design. Performing arts schools like Juliard have the best reputation in that field.
