I thought learning foundation classes would have been a hassle when I first came to the school. But after now finishing my first year I couldn't have been happier. Most of the basic information (such as color theory or art history) is really important and the teachers at this school make sure you're learning this information in the best way an artist can. That is by creating their lessons to suit the students creative minds.

    I do not recomend this school for fashion design students. The school, from a customers prospective, is not worth the money you pay for your degree (14,000 a semester ). You can pursue fashion design at many other unversitys that offer better opportunities for a percentage of the cost, for example kent state offers fashion design as well as fashion merchandising (you should and can partner the 2) for about 3,500 a semester. Clearly you are getting more bang for your buck in a program such as kent states.

    CCAD is a small private art school that focuses on developing an artist from every angle. It's a very pricey school with a lot of homework and many hours un slept.

    Very upbeat, personal and inviting. The Faculty is by far one of biggest reasons I'm comfortable here. If you're dedicated to working hard, then you'll love it here.

    The campus buildings are compact which is nice. Also the professors send e-mails out of what items to bring to class which is very helpful. The One-Stop Student Service Center will answer any questions varying from as simple as making a new ID if lost to setting up a meeting with an adviser.

    It's a very warm community with striking individuals. The school is pretty small so it's easy to find classes and make friends.

    They are creatively pushy. By that I mean that they will push you in your creativity maybe even more then you wanted to be pushed. This school is worth the money I am giving them.

    Columbus College of Art and Design is the perfect place to be for developing skills in art, such as drawing, painting, photography, animation, Fine Art, and more. Ever since I started attending the Saturday school classes in 2002, I've hoped of attending for real as an animation student. Now I am working hard to start a career in animation. Aside from the usual studies we also have computer labs, fun field days, visiting artists, clubs of interests, and much more.
