Artists. Creators. Educators. Changemakers. Our alums shape the world in their own way. They have the power to inspire and provoke, to ask and answer, and enrich communities with their work and passion.
We’re proud of all our alums, whether they go on to enjoy art-related careers or other vocations such as marketing, tech and entrepreneurialism. And we encourage them to stay connected to their alma mater as they continue to fuel the fire of their vision.
