The True American Dream

Creatives thrive on an eclectic mix of inspiration—diverse input tends to lead to incredible output.

That’s a good description of what we’ve built in Miami. Not a melting pot—a tossed salad of languages, skin color, customs, politics, history, music, design and art. Our school reflects the swirling culture of the city around it: Little Havana, Little Haiti, Little Argentina, Little Venezuela; Little Mexico, Little Russia and neighborhoods of all colors.

Where you look is where you go. That’s why we teach students to focus on the right stuff, the creative possibilities. Inside our walls, you’ll learn to create magic from the ordinary. You’ll learn to think in new ways. 

A place to become who you're meant to be.

Here, something is always happening: workshops, design events, and stand-up comedy nights. It’s a creative playground, designed from the ground up to inspire people like you…and push them to go beyond their preconceived barriers. 

On first arrival, our students traditionally look around and wonder, ”is this really a school?” 

It is, and it’s where you become who you’re meant to be.

No Professors Here—Just Real World Experts

Our Instructors are currently working in advertising agencies, design firms, and marketing departments, doing cutting-edge work. They’ll teach you everything they know.
