    AAU is filled with people from all over the world who share the traits of creativity, hard-work, diligence, and passion--which is the type of people you want to surround yourself with if you love art. The teachers all are professional artists and teach their craft from the ground up. The work is not easy, but the effort you put into it will get you far.

    As a online student the outcome will be rewarding. They do not offer a lot of scholarships. You have to be focused to do well.

    Academy of Art University is a great college for trying to pursue the arts. It's a lot cheaper than most colleges out there for the arts. I haven't been to a class but they look like fun from what I've seen so far, so I'm excited!

    A good school if you are prepared to do the work and pay for everything yourself. There are a lot of outside expenses that they do not warn you about. The programs are long but the education can be worth it. WORK HARD!

    A great school. Everything they teach is intended to make us become professional students. They don't just want us to get a degree and get out there without knowing anything. They really want us to go out to the world and show the quality of a student graduated from the AAU.
