Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts(PAFA) is an amazing school. I did my undergraduate studies at The Ohio State University where the size of the school is overwhelming at times. It was easy to fall through the cracks and be forgotten about. The intimate size of PAFA is perfect for your own personal studies. They encourage your own research into what you are interested in while also instructing you in exploring new modes of artistic production if it better illustrates you as an artist. The faculty deeply cares about you as a person and they are also actively involved in the arts to help get you into the scene to show work as well as network you to valuable connections for the rest of your artistic career.

I appreciate the exposure to so many art critics and other artists who evaluate my work. Everyone here is focused on helping each individual become a successful practicing artist. The campus is small and right in the center of midtown Philadelphia. That’s good because there is always something to do or someplace to go. That’s also bad because it’s impossible to park, traffic is always congested and if you live away it can be a long commute. I just started but believe I will flourish here and am excited to see my growth over the next two years.
