Recommendations for great Art colleges?

Hey all, I'm a junior hoping to pursue Art at college level. Anyone have any recommendations for great art colleges? Looking for schools with strong art programs as well as good overall academics.

Sure, I'd love to offer some recommendations. There are a number of colleges that are known for their excellent art programs.

1. Rhode Island School of Design (RISD): Known for being one of the best art and design schools in the world, its undergraduate offerings range from Illustration and Industrial Design to Painting and Sculpture. Note, they also have strong ties to Brown University so you can also take classes there.

2. Pratt Institute: Located in Brooklyn, it offers a variety of art disciplines, such as Fine Arts, Fashion Design, and Interior Design. It's well-respected academically and has a strong focus on professional preparation.

3. Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA): This college is known for its dedication to the arts, and it also offers a breadth of programs including Drawing, Graphic Design, and Interactive Arts.

4. University of California–Los Angeles (UCLA): In addition to the School of the Arts and Architecture, students have access to a strong overall education, being part of a large research university with a wide variety of majors and resources.

5. Yale University: The Yale School of Art is highly prestigious, and while it's primarily known for its graduate programs, undergraduates also have access to this excellent resource.

6. Carnegie Mellon University (CMU): The College of Fine Arts at CMU offers programs in fields like Drama, Music, and Art. Plus, you’ll have the rigorous academic reputation of CMU backing your degree.

Remember that the "best" school will ultimately depend on the specific focus within Art that you're interested in. Consider both the course offerings and faculty in your area of interest when making your decision. You might also want to consider factors like location (would you prefer a rural or urban setting?), size of the student body, support for internships or study abroad, etc. Good luck!
