Montserrat is unique in its campus size, apartment-style living, & close connection to the surrounding North Shore community, which provides a one-of-a-kind education & customizable culture for its students. The professors are diverse, personable people who are simultaneously working artists, & give authentic, supportive critiques. They actively engage with students in and out of the classroom. Montserrat staff are attentive, insightful, & approachable--from first time freshmen to old time alumni, all are important. Beverly and the surrounding towns are highly supportive & actively participating in the arts scene, through a wide variety of internship opportunities with local businesses, & community art programs and events. Montserrat is a place for all types of creative thinkers, allowing each individual to learn the way they want to learn, sharpen familiar skills or develop new ones, & be their own unique, powerful person.
Review Montserrat College of Art
Attending Montserrat was one of the best choices I've ever made. I loved the small student body size, because it let me get to know my fellow students/artists better, not to mention smaller class sizes made it much easier for professors to know me. It's a very welcoming environment and lacks the competitive feeling you get at many other art schools. It's located right next to a park and it's a five minute walk from the beach, not to mention it's right in the middle of downtown so there's lots of businesses and restaurants around.
Every professor that I had have been so helpful, respectful and fun! There is a lot of one on one time with professors since each class has a maximum of about 15 students. The quality of the courses here are very good, every class that I have taken is serious, yet not boring. Since the school is very small, we do not offer a whole lot of classes like other art schools do. But the quality of what we do have is amazing.
