"I definitely learnt a huge amount at CSVPA and I'm eternally grateful to the staff there for everything they did for me. They introduced me to so much of the world I work in professionally today - not just in the technical sense through learning software and skills, but philosophically too. John Blackman, Mandy Doyle, Kevin Hart and even Jane Herzog from the Fashion department, all taught me to approach design with a freedom I hadn't had before.
I think they recognised I had a strong work ethic but they also knew I needed that energy pointed in the right direction and without that focus, I wou'dn't have applied to Parson New York to study, let alone dream of working and living in New York.
My time at CSVPA was priceless. John and Mandy introduced me to a whole world of possibilities. They showed the faith in me that I felt my art teaching at my high school hadn't. The best compliment I can pay to the school and staff there is that they had the kind of impression on me as a student that I can only hope I one day leave on a young artist or designer.
The intimacy of the environment is what I benefited from the most. There was nothing superfluous about the experience there - you turned up and got on with it. there were plenty of extra-curricular programmes available if you wanted them, and I think a lot of the international students enjoyed that a lot. For me, it was just about being able to focus. Every day I knew I could walk through the doors and learn a ton of stuff in what felt like my own personal college. Not many places resonate like that.
If you are thinking about coming to CSVPA then my advice to you is to work hard and you'll be rewarded. It may not seem like it at times but the skills you're learning are invaluable. If you want to get paid for drawing cartoons and doodling on computers, its places like CSVPA that equip you for that environment."
