I am learned so much about art and about myself as an artist. MassArt starts with a studio foundation year which helps students sharpen their skills and find out what they want to do (you don't have to declare your major untill the second semester). Then in your major they deeply develop your understand of the material and help you make an identity with whichever art form you would like to do. Plus I am learning a lot from just living in the city and experiencing college life! Overall, I am learning more at MassArt than I ever have ever...

    A great art school in the middle of an even greater city. I've only been here for one semester and I've already noticed great improvement in my skills. One of the most accepting communities of people.

    It sounds like an amazing school and I really hope I can attend. The school sounds amazing with a very promising education. The cost of going to this college is also very reasonable.

    MassArt is a tremendous place for artists that are seeking a tight knit community. You are surrounded by people who are passionate (for the most part) about art and making. The faculty here is absolutely incredible and hearing opinions from working artists makes all the difference.

    The institution is exceptional in terms of faculty and facilities. There are many opportunities for collaboration and advancement of thinking through work. I have also found a way to pursue Lighting as a professional career through the SIM program, which is unique to MassArt.

    MassArt has amounted to everything I wanted and more. I've made so many great connections with people here and I've built friendships that will last forever. I've only been here for 2 years, but I've already learned so much and my skills have gotten so much better.

    The only free-standing public art school in the US! Good community in a nice city, and most students are very driven and focused. Pretty cheap school, but stingy with financial aid.
