The School of Visual Arts, the best art school in the world. As an International student from Israel, I can say that the school’s stuff was more than fantastic and welcoming. I had some struggles to adapt to study in a new language, but with the help of the Writing Resource Center and the free tutoring classes, My English got so much better. As a photographer, I feel that my skills gained so improved with the help of my awesome studio class teacher and the exciting critics in my workshop class. As an artist, I’ve never felt more connected to my art in this great school at the best location in the world.

If you're passionate about your major and career in the art, then this is the school for you. Variety of classes with deciated and experienced Professors that would guide you in your artistic vision. As well the benefit of it being in New York City, where there is many art opportunity and internships. After my 1st year, I learned how much hours and determined is need to show throughout your projects. While you might work long dreaded hours, its all worth it with the critics given and techniques on how to better improve as an artist.
Since I was little, I know New York is a amazing place. All superheros lives in Manhattan Island. Also all Aliens from different planet in entire universe will attack Manhattan Island 10 times per day. Now I understand, all stories is created by man. Students in sva are free to use their imagination to create their own stories. For me, animation can be the strongest way to speak out stories inside of me. thus why I decide studying animation in Manhattan Island. When I have offer from sva everything seems fine and perfect, my dream is going to come true. However there is one last serious problem confuse me. The living consumption in New York is so expensive for me.
