It's a good experience so far, workloads can sometimes get hard to manage but I feel like I am learning everything I need to know and more and the faculty I've interacted with are helpful or easy to talk to. What makes it unique is that it is on the smaller side therefore students can get more one-on-one attention.

At the College for Creative Studies, what I knew coming into this school was challenged and my artistic abilities were put to the test. The intensive program helps us grow as an artist, enhance, explore and broaden my abilities.
