What Students Are Saying

3.58 Average Rating
A very open minded and attentive school focused on the achievement and success of the students. A full staff with as much desire as experience to guide the future of local artists and the community. This school is one of the best art undergraduate schools in the country.

Studio classes are make it or break it; they will redefine your work ethic and build you into a better artist. The people are some of the most friendly, accepting, and interesting individuals you will ever come to know (I've only been here for two months and I've already made lifelong friends). The professors are amazing, not only for their extensive knowledge on subjects not limited to the one's they instruct, but also for their willingness to help pupils develop their interest in art/art history/writing.
