MCA is the bestFine Arts - Painting/Sculpture/Photography/etc
MCA is the best art school ever! Ok, so they say artists have to suffer for their art; here's the place to do it. If you make it through, you'll be able to do anything!

Art school (either undergrad or grad) is what you make of it. I have heard complaints about every art school in the U.S. So learn everything you can, do your own research, and don't expect the school to spoon feed you. Otherwise you will come out the way you went in: baby food.

Having an MFA degree helped me -from- gettingSuper BrilliantFine Arts - Painting/Sculpture/Photography/etc
Having an MFA degree helped me -from- getting laid off when everybody else in my department was. Education (no matter what school you go to) is primarily self teaching / learning. The school can only provide the tools. If you think you are not getting something from the school; ask. I was a workaholic in school from worrying too much about grades. What I should have done was explore Memphis more. I recommend everybody go to MCA. If you do the work; you will succeed. It may be hell, but it will be worth it.
