Not for the weak at art. Everyone who does well here works very hard. If you don't work hard or commit fully to your education here, you will not do well at all. That being said, you don't need to be a brilliant artist to get in. Just have good taste, at least SOME artistic talent and the school can get you the rest.

    A great environment for art. The people here are open to new ideas and mostly all of the teachers that I've had are great for guiding you in the direction that you need to take. You will learn A LOT here in the first few weeks even.

    Ccs is a very challenging school and you get a bang for your buck. The teachers are very passionate and so are the students. This school is really pricy though so make sure this is what you really want to do.

    CCS is a challenging, fun, and rewarding school to attend. It demands a lot of hard work and effort due to the rigorous curriculum and high expectations. However, it is one of the best schools in the United States for the visual arts and hard work really pays off in the long and short term.

    CCS is awesome, but hard. Prepare to never have a social life. Also, be prepared to never have any money ever.

    I've learned so much just in my first semester! Faculty and staff are wonderful and helpful as well and great teachers. Be prepared to work incredibly hard because yo can't slack off here, and the only thing that would make it better was if it wasn't so expensive!
