"I haven't met a single professor that has ever told me to stop what I'm doing because it's too 'provocative'. They allow me to be the type of artist that I want to be and give me advice when I need it. I consider them my friends and my teachers."

Making a Difference

The impact of an Art Academy education doesn't stop at graduation. Our alumni have gone on to have a powerful impact on the landscape of contemporary art and design. Many are employed by top creative firms and galleries, both locally and globally. Others have used the entrepreneurial skills they gained as students to launch their own creative firms and spaces.
