Academy of Art University, the top art school in San Francisco, has been preparing students for professional creative careers in various fields since 1929. Today, career readiness means educating students in how to best employ technology to create beautiful work, collaborate with each other effectively, and ultimately succeed as professional artists.
“All humans are born with creative potential, but to turn that creativity into something deeply meaningful takes hard work and focus,” says Hughes. He believes strong collaborations are the foundation of creativity. “We think really hard about choosing the best tools to help our students express themselves.”
The Academy is committed to preparing students for careers in today’s creative industries. The university strives to equip students across disciplines with knowledge and the requisite tools...because professionals working in today’s creative industries—from film to music production to design—rely on advanced technologies to be creative and enable those crucial collaborations.
