My overall impression of UNCSA is that it is a wonderland full of art, constant creation, challenge, and growth. Raw talent will be used and you will graduate having a well-rounded experience.

At this school I am being challenged not only as an artist, but also as a human being. I am constantly reminded that I am a human being first. That being said, so much of art can transfer into everyday life. I am extremely blessed to be in an environment that nurtures me as a whole person. Many, if not all, of the lessons being taught in the classroom can be applied to regular life. I am being taught to explore and experiment while learning to communicate my thoughts and critique my work, and my peers' work.

This has been a great place to learn your specific craft that you are passionate about. The professors are knowledgeable and the school is small enough so that students get individual attention.
