The Cleveland Insitute of Art is a very observant school. Nearly everyone is observive, quiet, and judge mental. Nearly every class was occasionally supplemented by the encouragement to say how you feel about an art piece. Expression was encouraged in every moment, even personally. Though it is average for new students to be on the quiet side, the silent spirit was not thick since day one.

I am so happy that I am attending The Cleveland Institute of Art. Based on what I have experienced and learned right now a lot have doors have opened up for me. I already got a paid internship in my field of study at the LBrand Corporation in Columbus, Ohio. That alone is an learning experience in itself. Based on the classes that I have at CIA I feel that I have chosen the correct major.

I would choose my school again because I enjoy the atmosphere is very enjoyable. Though the classes are very work heavy but it is all a good learning experience. I did improve my art skills that I thought I couldn't before. The school helps on developing ideas and researching on how to develop new ideas.
