What Students Are Saying

3.86 Average Rating
Don't take bad critiques personally, they make you stronger as an artist and help you develop your work.
Elena from Memphis, TN
Take your classes seriously, you aren't paying thousands of dollars to sit around and not show up or not turn in work. You aren't going to get any respect from your teachers here if you go about that way. Get used to calling your teachers by their first names, it may seem odd at first, but most of them prefer it that way. Be ready to spend a lot of money on supplies your first year. Get used to not getting off for things like Good Friday like you do in High School.
Mina from Maryville, TN
If you have the slightest interest in pursuing art, Memphis College of art is the place to be! Not only are the faculty and students inspiring and friendly, but the environment is also a major plus, as the school is located in the heart of the eclectic Memphis. Memphis always has fun activities to offer, but one must not get too distracted from the very challenging curriculum and studio assignments.
