Too late to study art?

I'm interested in studying 2D Animation later on in life but is this idea feasible or just a pipe dream?

Currently I'm 22 years old and studying at a local business college in NYC. I once considered studying art and applying to art colleges earlier in high school but due to outside factors I never pursued it. Especially since the local arts colleges are expensive and I didn't know what I wanted to to study.
I'm inexperienced apart from taking regular art classes in highschool and one semester of studio art at a public university. I always planned to study art as soon as I graduated from college and found a stable job but I never considered that I might be too old or too foolish overall. I don't want to be a financial burden to my mother so I'm considering my options in hope that I get a good idea before I waste everyone's time. Any suggestions or advice are welcome. Thank you.
Also, I have considered self-taught art lessons but I feel like I'd benefit from a formal setting for art.
