The Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design - Comments and Student Experiences |
I was initially attracted to the online learning environment but I soon realized that it's not the best way to learn. It's hard to get critiques from other students and so far I haven't gotten the best communication from my professors.
Now, art is a tricky field because you can't just go to art school, turn in projects and expect to land your dream job afterwards. You need to have the passion and dedication to work on school projects as well as other things outside of class. The teachers can teach you art & design, but they can't teach you motivation. You need to bring that yourself. I decided to leave because I could probably get a better education from my local university.What I'm trying to say is that RMCAD is a good school if you're a parent and would like to learn online, but if you take art seriously and want to make it in this field, go elsewhere. RMCAD accepts pretty much everyone with a portfolio and admissions essay so don't expect much talent. If you take a look at the faculty & student work it's not all that great in comparison to other schools. This school rides solely on their NASAD accreditation but that doesn't really mean much. Upon receiving my application and when making my decision about which colleges to attend, they kept bringing up how they were the only school out of my options that had NASAD accreditation. In reality, employers want to see your portfolio, not a piece of paper with a NASAD accredited school on it.
