Review New Hampshire Institute of Art
I am a second semester freshman at The New Hampshire Institute of Art. I was warned at orientation that the workload is heavy and a lot of students do not come back the following year due to the intensive workload. I personally have found extreme improvements in my finished pieces, work ethic, time management skills, and I am better at taking on tasks I know I can handle. Although, as a freshman I have to take foundation classes, I have looked at classes available and there is such large variety. Even though I am a Fine Arts major, I can take other classes such as calligraphy, which is mandatory for Graphic Design majors and vise versa. I love all the instructors also. You connect to each of them quickly with small classroom numbers. You are treated an equal by calling instructors by their first name. I feel very comfortable to ask questions and get hands on help, while still receiving mutual respect for one another. I personally have seen such a big improvement in my art, that I am thinking about selling pieces which is a huge confident booster that I did not have prior to coming here. Everyone is very kind and even other students are people who would do anything to help out one another. Even though I am a freshman, coming to an end of my first year at The New Hampshire Institute of Art has been such an amazing experience in a great learning environment and I enjoy being a part of such an amazing group of aspiring artists and community.
Don't go here. While the faculty is great, the administration is a nightmare to deal with. I'm graduating next semester and have been dealing with my tuition bill constantly getting screwed up, passive aggressive administration, and absolutely no respect or concern for commuters. This school doesn't have its stuff together. Go elsewhere.
Although there are some aspects of the school that are less than desirable, I've had a pretty good education for the price. Students must be self-motivated - if you lack passion for the arts, you will not do well here, or at any other art school for that matter. But because this is such a small and intimate school, you must work hard to earn respect or your professors and peers. Everyone knows each other here. There are some clicks, but in general everyone is nice. Not great security - keep your valuables with you at all times! Take advantage of their workshops and guest speakers! School is in expanding right now - developing more majors like graphic design and creative writing. Strong majors are photo, painting, and printmaking.
