Montserrat College of Art Reviews
Review Montserrat College of Art
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.
As much as I love my instructors, and as much as I’m personally learning, I can’t give this college a positive review due to the student body and how the college treats the students. I transferred in, and it’s astounding to see how the students here are babied by the faculty. 90% of the student body doesn’t hand in their work on time, and doesn’t follow basic instructions of assignments, yet nothing is done about this and those students are somehow allowed to pass alongside students like me who follow assignment instructions and never miss a deadline. Students are not taught accountability or responsibility and it shows. The faculty has to hold their hand every step of the way. It’s created a very toxic and frustrating environment for serious students to learn in. I love my instructors, and I’ve learned a lot, but this college really needs to start treating its students like adults, not children.
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.
