    California College of the Arts is a diverse and integrated school that really cares about community and individual growth. At CCA I spent four wonderful years discovering new things, immersing myself in art culture, and meeting like-minded passionate people who care about art and their community. I would highly recommend CCA to any art student who wants to learn from industry professionals and is looking for a memorable experience.

    Reasonably priced art college that is located near San Francisco. It has rich resources (alumni, environment etc.) and many different majors to choose from. Try out their pre-college program.
