            Great faculty!The classes flow very well, the faculty is very helpful and kind, and you can take as many or as few classes as you'd like at a time. It is a bit pricey, depending on what equipment you will need for your major, but it's worth it with all the information that is given to you! I'm proud when I tell people that I am attending the Art Institutes!
