Montserrat College of Art was founded by working creative professionals and operates on the tenet that “the practice of art, design, research, and creative enterprise has intrinsic value.” Montserrat confers Bachelors of Fine Arts (BFAs) in a variety of concentrations, from Book Arts to Animation + Interactive Media. The college offers Intensive Art Travel Programs during the winter and summer breaks, as well as a Semester Mobility Program in the US and Canada. The four galleries on the Beverly, Massachusetts, campus feature emerging and established art from across the globe and are always free.
A small cozy school for students interested in learning any form of art. Based more on classical art than digital, but offer excellent programs in both, simply have more in fine arts. Very supportive staff and friendly environment.

I'd give it an A+, BUT I can't say Montserrat is perfect- It's an established school with a good curriculum, but it isn't as intense as an art school should be, in comparison to RISD. I still struggle with basic techniques that should have been reinforced since Freshmen/Sophomore year. But, Professors are easy to talk to and are fantastic resources - if you ask for it.
