Most of the teachers here are good and care about their students. They push you to try new things and work harder. We go to school in an office building. There are two tiny student lounges and often kids have to eat lunch on the floor in the hallway. We have no food court here, just a few crappy vending machines. Homeless people have gotten into our building before, it's not hard to do. Location is on Michigan Ave and right by the Art Institute museum. You can't pick your own classes lately because there are no choices, you just get put somewhere even if you have no interest in the class. They charge you lab fees which are rediculious and should be built into your tuition.
Review American Academy of Art
It's great being taught by people who are already established in the art community. The teachers are really personable and it's not hard to talk to them at all. While there isn't anything like a meal plan and the dorms are quite expensive - which is kind of expected being downtown and all - the classes and how thoroughly subject matter is covered makes up for it
Within my school there are many different people. Just walking down the hall you see different races, different religious beliefs, different financial backgrounds. Some people are from out of state, and living in the dorms, while others commute an hour to school. In a classroom you'll see Caucasian, Hispanic, Asian, African, and many other races. Going to an art school in Chicago you see so many different types of people that there isn't any problems with acceptance, everyone is different and everyone accepts that.
