The small size classes allow for more focused concentration to get projects done. There is a close network of students and instructors. The school's location is great. Major museums such as the Rodin museum, The Barnes Foundation, and The Philadelphia Museum of Art are close by. The Instructors who teach the students are artists in fields of painting, sculpture, and printmaking.
