Hey guys, guess what today is? My birthday! Yay! Im 19 today. Not super exciting, except now I can drink in every province
ANYhow, heres my little rant about school...
I'll be honest, I get pretty pissed off when people diss ACAD, saying its not a great art school when theyve never been. Its actually internationally renowned, especially for its design program, and people come from all over the world (though mainly north america) to go here. We just got permission to start doing masters degrees here, so in a few years Im sure you'll be able to get a Masters in Design at the very least at this school. Now, I know that some of the stuff that comes out of this school isnt fantastic, but that goes for any school. However, it might interest you to know that Sam Weber went here and graduated only a few years ago from the design stream, and he is now internationally famous. Seriously, look up his stuff, its awesome, hes even doing a book for the Folio society (thats my dream).
And yeah, not all of the teachers are fantastic, but Ive liked every design teacher Ive had here, and they all want us to succeed, most of them are super helpful and they all really know their stuff. So yeah. ACAD rocks. Deal with it. And although the building is ugly, now its like a home to me, I kinda love it <3
And the tuition's actually really cheap.
And we throw fantastic parties.
On a less rant-like note: FLORENCE AND THE MACHINE ROCKS MY WORLD.
