A lot of my professors were really good at giving us hands-on experience and I think it is really important that our professors have the experience and know what the field is actually like. My RMCAD education really helped me know how the design process really works from start to finish.
I was influenced by women in power who were not afraid to be feminine and sexual with their clothing. I will be the first kid in my immediate family to graduate college. It’s really a big deal and it’s really exciting.
My best advice to Veterans that want to pursue their art degree is just to go for it! It’s kind of intimidating because art school is a whole different world and it kind of pushes you out of your comfort zone, but it’s all worth it!
Having the opportunity to design this senior collection has been amazing. The thing I love the most about being a Fashion Design student at RMCAD is the freedom to explore my interests and the tight-knit community really allowed me to develop genuine relationship with my instructors.
What I love most about being a Fashion Design student at RMCAD is that it’s been a humbling experience to meet other creatives even outside the fashion program. I think we have a lot of world class creatives.
For incoming students to RMCAD and the Fashion Department, I give the advice of: say yes. Say yes to every opportunity that you can get. Go for it even if its overwhelming and then also ask questions and be bold. Ask if you can do the crazy things. They will say yes.
RMCAD played an important step in my artistic development and my career. My instructors at RMCAD taught me the skills and software I use on a daily basis in my profession. Alumni Services helped me get into contact with industry professionals helping me get my start in game art.
Class of 2019 /Fashion Design
I design for the powerful woman who wears garments with more coverage to inspire her.
Class of 2003 /Fine Arts, Illustration, Illustrative Design
RMCAD was really influential for me, the teachers I had were extremely impactful and I still keep in touch with them. I think a smaller school like RMCAD can be really beneficial in terms of making connections and keeping those connections.
That moment was when everybody started to understand my work without me having to say anything, that was a moment where I started to feel like I was connecting with something.
Class of 2017 /Art Education
I think what’s really rewarding about teaching is when you finally see a person’s face light up.
Class of 2004 /Animation
What’s really nice about the RMCAD community is that it is a community. We’re all good friends and we keep in contact. A lot of the people that I was here with are working in the industry, so that says how important those relationships are.
