Where one big happy art community. The walls come alive with art works made by the students and teachers. Everyone has there own styles and connections within the art community. We challenge other fellow artists with good sportsmanship. While as we work, we share ideas to help each other to improve. Thus, we work together to help each other to grow as artists. That is what an art community is all about it's to help one another to succeed in our lives growing as artist.
Review Art Academy of Cincinnati
The biggest flaw I saw with this school was that I was at my end of year review and a professor asked me, "So, what did you learn this year?" and I opened my mouth to answer, but had to close it again. I have good grades, yet I couldn't think of one new thing I had learned.
The school is fine if you want to work in a gallery, but I tried to investigate what classes I could take that would allow me to work in an animation company and I was told that I would essentially have to make it on my own, no classes would give me the skills I needed.
The community at AAC is absolutely fantastic- being a small school, the student community is amazing. However, there is a HUGE disparity in the quality of teachers, especially considering the fact that only 8 of our faculty are full-time, and of those there are probably two who are absolutely garbage at their job. Also being a small school, there have also been a number of security issues that wouldn't happen at larger schools, including things like theft and vandalism in the school building. We've also had issues the past few years with staff retainment and it's hard to find non-faculty staff members to rely on because people are constantly leaving.
