The Value of an Art & Design Education

Here's a great video from Moore College of Art & Design, the first and only visual arts women's college in the United States, "Creative Minds Transforming Society." If you are thinking about a career in the visual arts, I know you will enjoy this video as much as I did.

"Art and design is a growing sector that has a significant impact on our economy. Additionally, people who pursue a degree at a specialized school for art and design are prepared for careers in a wide range of fields. Perhaps most importantly, they are more likely to be working in careers that they find meaningful, while also pursuing their passion outside of their jobs. For all these reasons, we know that art and design degrees at schools like Moore College of Art & Design are a great investment."

Plus, Moore College is dedicated to their students and careers:

"Moore College of Art & Design continues a strong commitment to its founder Sarah Worthington Peter’s promise of “empowering women to achieve financial independence by providing a high-quality, career-focused education.”    Its 2012 BFA graduates are already enjoying successful careers.   93% are employed and 79% of those are with organizations in their fields of study, including Abercrombie & Fitch, Daroff Designs, Inc., Pennsylvania School for the Deaf, Princeton University Press, Triangle Home Fashions, Tyco and numerous others."
