Reading from other reviews, I know I'll learn a lot, not only in Illustration, but in other forms of art too. They have an awesome Foundations program, and just by reading the curriculum, I know I'm going to learn more and more about art.

    MECA forms a small, close-knit community that is always adaptive and receptive to Portland and the city people around it. It is a personal experience, where professors know you by name and hold you accountable for the work that you do; they really care about your work and your growth through the school. MECA is an excellent environment which fosters both artistic creativity and innovation outside the art world as well by holding its academics to a high standard, in order to inform the studio practice of those in the school.

    Welcoming with a small community atmosphere. It is a feeling of being in a small town in the middle of a big city. Everyone is super friendly and inviting from staff to students.

    A fantastic place for people to grow in all meanings of the word. grow in skill, spirit, fame, and networking. The only thing that won't grow is your wallet, which will turn into a blackhole and devour your life untill you have to join a branch of the U.S. military to pay for it.
