Can anyone recommend schools with good BFA programs? I am particularily interested in schools that have 100% online classes. So far, the Academy of Art Institute in San Francisco is at the top of my list.

depends on

depends on what you want your focus to be. Also why would you want all online classes? I know of several bay Area art schools, but it all depends on what direction you'd like your degree to run to.

Re: depends on

I am planning on getting into a Masters program in Library and Info Sciences, and need a Bachelor degree in order to apply. Having only an AA, I figure since I want to learn more about art and need to get a Bachelor degree anyway, I may as well get a BFA, something that will not only help me as an (already accomplished) artist, but also allow me to teach art, should I choose to do so, in the future.

I am really only interested in online schools as I am not willing to relocate outside of my home (New Orleans) and, since I really want the piece of paper that says I have the BFA as well as the learning more about the art of painting and getting a good, rounded art education.

I wanted to rehash all the above as I believe I have found the right school, with the right programs. The Academy of Art University in San Francisco seems to have a great program, and I can focus my degree in painting with online video classes, so that is what I am going for.
