From Living Arts College

Living Arts College is a different kind of growing experience. It's a studio-level place to grow one's creativity. Living Arts was founded 30 years ago by an award winning media director, Roger Klietz. Mr. Klietz decided a place was needed for film, design, photography, and design students to create works demonstrating ability to practice as Creativity Professionals.

Here are the Monolithic Domes that one college dean called "The design school of the future, here today." Living Arts is all about creating a creative body of work under the eye of top flight faculty pros. And, it's all affordable.

I'm a senior animation student about to graduate in a few months. For the most part, the professors have all been great with teaching their respective classes, and because the average amount of students per class is so small, it is easy to get the one-on-one help you need. However, the work load and deadlines can be extremely difficult to handle, especially if you are someone with poor physical or mental health. Also, the management at the school has not always been the greatest. Overall, I'd say my experience here has been good, but the fast pace of the curriculum made it nearly impossible to keep up.

Extremely knowledgeable faculty that focus on preparing you to go directly into working in your field. I have also gotten experience in other areas from working with students from other departments, which broadened my skill set. Made a lot of good friends that I look forward to continue working with.
I am only in my second quarter at Living Arts College, but I have to say that I am glad I came here. My original school of choice was Duke University and honestly if I had gone there I would not have the chance I have now of following my childhood dream. The major listed on my account profile here at Niche is inaccurate as I am studying Digital Audio Production. I also get to work directly with film, and animation majors which will give me the real world experience of knowing how to deal with them when I get hired somewhere, also looks good on a resume. A five star review is not high enough for this school rating. It deserves to be a 100 star rating. Words can not describe the awesome experience of being a student at this school, just enroll and experience it for yourself firsthand....
