You career will be negatively affected if youQuite BrightArt & Design Department
You career will be negatively affected if you attend this school. Low standards, no connection to the industry, outdated staff and facilities. It's easy to banter on about this place! Only two people that I graduated out of 80 in my class, have jobs in the industry. Go to a state school where you can get instate tuition and federal grants and scholarships. The debt you will incur from this school will crush your dreams!

Question
I started here in 2010 and the schoolBrightArt & Design Department
I started here in 2010 and the school is fantastic. A lot of kids expect to learn 3D modeling in 11 weeks, the length of a quarter, but in reality it doesn't work that way. As kids they expect to be spoon fed this information instead of working their asses off. Of course they fail, and then project their failures here.

The Art Institute of Colorado (AIC) is a great school with a great staff, and I was very thankful to study here. The secret to success at AIC is to work your asses off. The reality of that is this is the secret at all commercial art schools.

If you expect to learn everything about animation in 11 weeks then call me up, I'll sell you some fairy dust.J.P.

While I as there this school felt full of educational biasArt & Design Department
While I as there this school felt full of educational bias that created a hostile learning environment.

They favor some students over others regardless of their skill level, mainly if they like their personality.

Most of the faculty are conservatively driven as far as politics and they may act like they aren't. I was accused of being a communist while I was there by one professor privately, which I'm not. Later I've found out a comment like that may not even be legal and could get a professor fired, I'm sure.

Although you learn some good introductory information it is up to you to work hard which in the end they try and take credit for your private innovations, as if they taught you everything you developed.

It ultimately is a tech school that disguises itself as an art school. Lastly I would like to mention that there are some people who get in the animation program who have been drawing for years and they try and then turn these peoples results around like you can develop that ability in the degrees time of 4 years.

From my private research in literature printed by prominent media artists they say some people who focus on one field of traditional art can spend years working on their style before they can really hone and perfect it.I feel like there is more I could state but I feel that I have said enough to reasonably voice my dissatisfaction.
