The School incorporated as the Chicago Academy of Fine Art in 1879, and changed its name to the Art Institute of Chicago in 1882. The Museum and School moved into a building designed and built for the World's Columbian Exposition in 1893. Today the School is known as the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC).</span></span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: medium;"><span style="font-family: times new roman,times;">Since 1976, SAIC has occupied its own cutting-edge facilities adjoining the Museum and its new Modern Wing overlooking Grant Park and Lake Michigan with additional buildings throughout an urban campus at the heart of the Chicago Loop. Throughout the history of the School, alumni have played central roles in important art movements. It was SAIC that provided the impetus for two significant schools of American painting—the Regionalists of the 1930s, and the Imagists of the 1960s. Some of the most notable names in the arts received their early training at SAIC, including Georgia O'Keeffe, Claes Oldenburg, H.C. Westermann, Thomas Hart Benton, Grant Wood, Ivan Albright, Ed Paschke, Roger Brown, Halston, LeRoy Neiman, Elizabeth Murray, Cynthia Rowley, David Sedaris, Rirkrit Tiravanija, and Sarah Vowell.</span></span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: medium;"><span style="font-family: times new roman,times;"><b>SAIC today</b></span></span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: medium;"><span style="font-family: times new roman,times;">The School of the Art Institute of Chicago is one of the largest accredited independent schools of art and design in the country. Providing degrees at the undergraduate and graduate levels, SAIC has been recognized by <i>U.S. News and World Report</i> as one of the top graduate art programs in the nation, as well as by <i>Columbia University's National Arts Journalism</i> survey as the most influential art school in the United States. SAIC offers a broad and dynamic spectrum of study including art and technology; arts administration; art history, theory, and criticism; art education and art therapy; fashion design; filmmaking; historic preservation and interior architecture; painting and drawing; performance; photography; printmaking; sculpture; sound; time arts (time-based media); video; visual communication; and writing. A comprehensive program in liberal arts emphasizes the critical role that humanities, mathematics, and sciences play in artists' development. The SAIC also serves as a national resource for issues related to the position and importance of the arts in society.</span></span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: medium;"><span style="font-family: times new roman,times;">The Art Institute of Chicago is a private, non-profit corporation. The School is a professional college of the visual and related arts, accredited since 1936 by the Higher Learning Commission of NCA, the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, and as a charter member since 1944 by NASAD, the National Association of Schools of Art and Design. The School's art education program is certified by the Illinois State Board of Education, and its art therapy program is approved by the Education and Approval Board of the American Art Therapy Association.

Our program integrates writing, a liberal arts education, and studio skills, so that students become literate and knowledgeable of our cultural background. By the end of their studies at MICA, students are expected to be able to work independently in their chosen medium. <br /><br />The College faculty is made up of professors in the liberal arts and professional artists, all of whom are committed to teaching. It is important to the College that the faculty continue active careers creating, exhibiting, or publishing their own work and that most faculty teach students at all levels - freshmen as well as advanced students. The College is dedicated to having a faculty that is diverse racially, culturally, and in terms of aesthetic direction. While our permanent faculty provide the essence of the learning experience at the College, the visiting artist program further enriches the education of MICA students by bringing other nationally recognized artists to campus for residencies, critiques, and lectures. Among the faculty are individuals who are employed full-time in their profession and teach one or two courses at the College, bringing an important real-world perspective to the classroom. <br /><br />Our students come from multicultural and varied economic backgrounds. Intellectual curiosity, creativity, motivation, and self-discipline are among the attributes we look for in prospective students. Through a course of study at the College, students develop a body of work that reflects their potential for professional achievement. The experience at Maryland Institute College of Art, by including internship programs, as well as other co-curricular opportunities, offers students a firm base upon which to launch and build a career. <br /><br />The co-curricular programs of the College - including programming in residence life, student affairs, student activities, community-based art and design, and career development - support the College's primary goal, which is to nurture the professional, intellectual, and personal growth of emerging artists and designers. We recognize and understand the needs of our students so that we can offer them the resources they need for success in the intense studio and academic environment of one of the nation's top colleges of art and design. </span><br /><br /><br /></span></span></p> Wed, 16 May 2012 16:27:14 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ber/Schools/list http://www.artslant.com/ber/Schools/list CalArts (California Institute of the Arts) <p><span style="color: #666633; font-size: small;"><strong>About</strong></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: x-small;">California Institute of the Arts educates professional artists in a unique learning environment founded on the principles of artmaking excellence, experimentation, critical reflection and independent inquiry.

Stephens, a fine art painter who had accepted the position of Creative Director for <i>Sunset Magazine</i>. Assisted by his wife, Mrs. Clara Stephens, he opened the new school in a rented loft at 215 Kearny Street to teach advertising art. In a few years, a distinguished faculty of practicing art and design professionals was assembled and the school’s philosophy was formulated: hire established professionals to teach future professionals. In 1933 the curriculum was expanded to include Fashion Illustration, and in 1936 a Fine Art Department was added. <br /><br />In 1951, after graduating from Stanford University, Dr. Richard A. Stephens took over the Presidency from his parents. His vision led to the expansion of the Academy from an enrollment of fifty students in two rented loft spaces to a 5,200 student body, with continued expansion of department majors available. In 1966 the school was incorporated and granted authority to offer a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Art by the Bureau for Private Postsecondary and Vocational Education of the State of California. The graduate program was inaugurated in 1977 and approved by 1983. <br /><br />Dr. Elisa Stephens, the granddaughter of the school’s founder, succeeded her father as President of the Academy of Art University in 1992. Dr. Stephens has been committed to expanding the Academy’s curriculum to stay current with new technologies and industry trends, as well as making state-of-the art facilities and resources available to Academy students. In 2004, the name of the school was changed from Academy of Art College to Academy of Art University in recognition of its depth, scope and quality. <br /><br />Today the University has more than 13,000 students, making it the largest private school of art and design in the country.  Students now have the opportunity to pursue a  Bachelor of Fine Arts, Bachelor of Arts, Associate of Arts, Master of Fine Arts, Master of Arts, Master of Architecture, Certificate Programs or Continuing Art Education courses, with over 30 areas of academic emphasis.</span></span></p> Fri, 11 May 2012 11:25:42 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ber/Schools/list http://www.artslant.com/ber/Schools/list SFSU (San Francisco State University) <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: medium;"><span style="font-family: times new roman,times;"><b>San Francisco State has distinguished itself</b> as a center of academic scholarship, creative innovation and civic involvement.

With an emphasis on mastering skills and visual thinking, students engage in the process of making art. The format of ongoing classes allows students to learn at their own pace and from prominent artists who have a range of artistic philosophies and approaches.

In addition, Yale encompasses a wide array of centers and programs, libraries, museums, and administrative support offices. Approximately 11,250 students attend Yale.</p> <p>SCHOOL OF ART</p> <p>Since the mid-twentieth century, Yale has been a leader in the integration of the practice of painting, sculpture, photography, design, and new media into both undergraduate and graduate curricula.</p> <p>The commitment of the School of Art to the rigorous fusion of thinking and making-in a context in which superb resources in other disciplines are available to aspiring artists-has made it a magnet for the most talented young people from around the world. Starting in the 1960s with the arrival of Bauhaus master Josef Albers, the School has likewise attracted an unrivaled faculty. In addition, visiting lecturers have included a cross section of the creators and critics who have set the course of visual art during the last five decades. Indeed, many who attended the School of Art have gone on to join the front ranks of that groundbreaking company.</p> <p>With a constant flow of speakers, new facilities for all mediums, a new exhibition space for contemporary art, and events and programs developed in collaboration with the Yale University Art Gallery and other arts departments, the School of Art offers students, the university as a whole, and the wider community not only a broad perspective on what has recently happened and is happening in art, but also glimpses of what is coming.</p> Sun, 27 Nov 2011 23:27:10 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ber/Schools/list http://www.artslant.com/ber/Schools/list CSULB (California State University Long Beach) <p><span style="color: #008000; font-size: small;"><strong>ABOUT</strong></span></p> <p>California State University, Long Beach is a large, urban, comprehensive university in the 23-campus <a href="http://www.calstate.edu/"><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><span style="color: #0000ff;">California State University system</span></span></a>.</p> <p>CSULB is committed to serving the people of California and endeavors to provide academic programs and campus services for both traditional and non-traditional students. The University enrolls students who have graduated in the top third of the State’s high school graduating class, those who have completed a community college program, and adults re‑entering education.</p> <p>CSULB aims, above all, to graduate students with highly valued degrees, and to prepare them for lifelong learning as well as for success in a variety of professional fields. To these ends, the mission of the undergraduate curriculum is grounded in a strong general education program, emphasizing the acquisition of writing, critical thinking, and analytical skills and knowledge of cultural and artistic traditions; the analysis of human behavior and society in the past and present; and scientific modes of inquiry.</p> <p>The mission of all degree programs is to provide each student with the skills necessary to pursue knowledge and to integrate information from various sources, and also to provide depth in at least one area of specialization. The mission of the graduate programs is to prepare students to enter careers requiring training beyond the baccalaureate, to advance in their jobs, or to pursue advanced study. Doctoral programs are intended to provide both advanced knowledge and the skills needed to pursue independent research. Educational support programs and services for students emphasize the importance of personal, interpersonal, and social development.</p> <p>A fundamental goal of the University is to prepare students to function effectively in a culturally diverse society by developing an understanding of our diverse heritage, including the essential contributions of women and ethnic minorities. Instruction in all disciplines emphasizes ethical and social dimensions as well as their applications to contemporary world issues. The University also emphasizes global awareness, through internationally-focused curricula and encouragement of study abroad.</p> <p>CSULB seeks to engage students directly in their learning by offering most of the curriculum in small sections taught by fully qualified, professionally active faculty members, and by providing opportunities for students to work with faculty members in independent research and creative activities. CSULB serves the surrounding community through applied research, training and community service programs, and other forms of civic engagement.  Faculty and staff are committed to student success and are actively involved in fostering that success both in and out of the classroom.</p> <p><strong><span style="color: #008000; font-size: small;">Art Program</span></strong></p> <p>The CSULB College of the Arts is six unique, artistically engaging and academically challenging departments: The Departments of Art, Dance, Design, Film and Electronic Arts, Music and Theatre, along with four auxiliary arts and letters organizations: the University Art Museum, the Richard and Karen Carpenter Performing Arts Center, the Center for First Amendment Studies and the California Institute for the Preservation of Jazz.</p> Sat, 27 Oct 2012 20:52:42 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ber/Schools/list http://www.artslant.com/ber/Schools/list Columbia University <P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><FONT size=3><FONT face="Times New Roman" color=#008000><STRONG>ABOUT</STRONG></FONT></FONT></P> <P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><FONT size=3><FONT face="Times New Roman"></FONT></FONT>&nbsp;</P> <P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><FONT size=3><FONT face="Times New Roman">From its beginnings in a schoolhouse in lower <st1:City w:st="on">Manhattan</st1:City>, <st1:PlaceName w:st="on">Columbia</st1:PlaceName> <st1:PlaceType w:st="on">University</st1:PlaceType> has grown to encompass two principal campuses: the historic, neoclassical campus in the <st1:PlaceName w:st="on">Morningside</st1:PlaceName> <st1:PlaceType w:st="on">Heights</st1:PlaceType> neighborhood and the modern <st1:PlaceName w:st="on">Medical</st1:PlaceName> <st1:PlaceType w:st="on">Center</st1:PlaceType> further uptown, in <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:PlaceName w:st="on">Washington</st1:PlaceName> <st1:PlaceType w:st="on">Heights</st1:PlaceType></st1:place>.
