Let me level with you…There IS NO survival guide to surviving Art Center. Maybe this blog will help, but these are my personal experiences and everyone’s experience is different. So the only sincere advice I can offer you is this: Work hard, be kind and stay humble. That’s what every instructor told me, and that’s exactly what I am telling you. “There’s no first place asshole award.” So put your head down and work, be genuine and professional, and for crissakes, swing for the fucking fences!!! This my be the only time in the pursuit of your career that you can FAIL and not get fired. Good luck!
