Here, you’ll have an amazing network of well-trained, hard-working creative thinkers who walked through our doors before you. They paved the way for you as you will for those who come after you. You’ll be trained by advertising professionals. Work on real client briefs. Partner with art directors, copywriters, and strategists who are as passionate as you are about their careers.

The school itself is located in Astoria in a building with WeWork and the largest beer garden in the country. Commuting in the morning is easy, with nearby stops for the M, R, W, N trains.

The area has the highest concentration of art galleries and studio space of any neighborhood in New York. It also has some of the most affordable housing. Come for a tour and sit in on a class.
