Art Direction Program
You'll love being an Art Director
Walk in any direction and you will bump into a creative soul. A social media genius. In another direction a food photographer walking with an ad agency art director. Around the corner a model posing for a fashion illustrator. Across the street a Russian duo painting a 30 foot nose and nose rings on brick wall. A few feet to the right and two young women are loudly discussing a new app idea. A youngish man is listening but pretending not to. Three writers at a small table taking a selfie with a chef. A huge brown Doberman under the table hoping for scraps. At least twenty people in view on their smart phone. A mechanical monkey dancing to the musical noise of the organ grinder. You are late for your portfolio review.
The school is just a smaller version of the city. Art directors and copywriters huddled or hustling all over. A copywriting class in one corner critiquing Instagram posts. The teacher howling at them. In the photo studio a female student dressed as Elvis with wings attached, gyrating and singing a bad impression of “Are You Lonesome Tonight”. One teacher in the corner with a student who has an idea for an app and the instructor tells the student, sadly there is already such an app. First quarter students headed out the door going somewhere loudly. The group spreads open to let a very tall man stepping high in slow motion while paying “Beautiful Dreamer” on his flute. A dwarf in a clown suit behind him hits a drum with his drumstick in no particular beat.
