                                   Each year the Purchase College School of Art+Design enrolls
                                   a select group of ambitious individuals seeking to explore
                                   their artistic talent, and to use that talent as the focus of a
                                   comprehensive, highly personalized education.
                                   Part of Purchase College’s School of the Arts, the School
                                   of Art+Design is an extraordinary place: a widely acclaimed
                                   public art and design school, connected to three world-class
                                   arts conservatories – dance, music, and theatre arts and
                                   film – embedded in a college of liberal arts and science.
                                   The School of Art+Design prepares students for careers in art
                                   and design, as well as for other careers that demand discipline,
                                   intensity, and creativity – in other words, just about any career
                                   that exists.
                                   If you seek the rigor and discipline of an art school education
                                   enriched by a strong program in liberal arts and sciences; if you
                                   wish to explore your talents in an energized and open-minded
                                   environment; and if you wish to work and study on a friendly,
                                   safe, supportive campus just 45 minutes north of New York City,
                                   then we warmly invite you to apply.

TO ENTER THE SCHOOL OF ART+DESIGN IS TO COMMIT–
MIND, BODY, AND SPIRIT – TO YOUR DEVELOPMENT AS
A VISUAL ARTIST.
YOUR EXPERIENCE HERE WILL BE QUITE UNLIKE ANY
YOU HAVE EVER HAD OR LIKELY WILL HAVE IN THE
FUTURE. YOUR DAYS WILL START EARLY, GO LATE, AND
SOMETIMES BLUR ONE INTO THE NEXT. IT WILL
BE INTENSE AND CHALLENGING, BUT IN THE END,
LIFE-CHANGING AND EXTREMELY REWARDING.
OH YEAH; IT WILL BE A LOT OF FUN, TOO.

                                         most unusual. The most intense. The most free-spirited. The most political. The quietest.
                                         Now imagine them all in one place.
