A Note To Future Students From President Stephens

Choosing the right college can be challenging—and doubly so if you are an artist or creator. Finding a place that values and nurtures your creative spirit while giving you the skills to emerge prepared for a career is often difficult.

That’s why visiting Academy of Art University’s Spring Show in person or online is an invaluable experience. Here you will see the extraordinary work of graduating students who a few years ago were just like you, artists and creators looking for a home.

Academy of Art University offers more than 130 different degrees in art, design, and creative endeavors, from graphic design to transportation design, from motion pictures and animation to UX/UI, from fashion design to photography, and of course, we teach all the “Fine Arts,” painting, sculpting, illustrating, printmaking and more.

The motto of Academy of Art University, Defy the Ordinary, Create the Extraordinary, infuses all of our student work and prepares graduates for extraordinary careers. They produce music for Kendrick Lamar and Drake, help animate top-grossing movies like The Avengers and work for top companies like Nike, Pixar, Audi, Vogue, Apple, Blizzard, Ralph Lauren, Gucci, Google, Pandora, Disney, Facebook, Adobe, Blizzard, Netflix, and General Motors.

Join us at the 2022 Spring Show and see what the future can hold for you.
