Perhaps the most difficult part of this process, like anything, is to take the first step. Some of our first-quarter students are tentative. Some are over-confident. But all of them are driven to put some part of themselves out there. With each passing day they find themselves continually shifting course ever so slightly by listening, learning, doing, and sharing their work with talented people in all of our programs of study. They appreciate the fact that they are challenged, encouraged, and motivated to do their best by experienced faculty, many of whom are professionals in their respective fields.
With an appreciation of the tools and a portfolio of their best work, our graduates are prepared to hit the ground running. But their first step was to decide. They know success doesn't come looking for you. We are here to help you find that direction. Come explore The Illinois Institute of Art. It is a journey of possibilities. Are you ready?
