Academy of Art University - First Day High

Academy Weekly SPECIAL EDITION: First Day High

This year’s opening of the fall semester at our art school was made even more special with your first day highlights! We’ve compiled your posts for posterity, so check them out!

Before we get into that, let’s take a quick look at what went down in the Academy of Art University’s blogosphere last week:

 It was a rare treat having a long weekend, thanks to the Labor Day holiday! Beyond the celebrations, of course, we remembered the true reason why we celebrate this day: honoring the American labor movement.

We also hit the ground running with various RSVP events, including the prestigious New York Fashion Week Graduate Show. And then, of course, we took our newbies out for a fun spin in the city over the weekend. Our galleries on Sutter also opened a couple of exhibits running throughout the month, showcasing some exceptional student and alumni work.

As for last week’s top school picks, we explored various classes and prospective jobs to look forward to in the following art and design programs:
