Our professors are key to the success of our approach. They are highly skilled educators who are also practicing art and design professionals. They come from leading design and architecture studios, fashion companies, advertising and marketing agencies, and arts and culture institutes. Some are renowned art curators, designers, critics, published authors, or regular contributors to influential art and design magazines. All bring a current, real-world perspective to their lectures and group projects, through which they inspire students to learn, experiment, and grow.
