    Just wondering if anyone is going to San francisco's academy of art for their summer program this year, if so we could share schedules and chat @ orientation

    I went to the program last summer...hopefully you guys enjoy it as much as I did. I'm going there this fall
    And make sure you make the most of it. If you don't it could be easy to get sidetracked from what you're really there for.

    I took comic illustration, traditional animation, game design, and clothed figure drawing. My favorite was traditional animation...very inspirational class for me. The figure drawing classes really helped me a lot too. I'm going there as an illustration major though since I realized I want to do concept art.

    I wasn't in any of those classes so I can't really say. My roommate over there was in motorcycle/car design though and he was really good. He didn't tell me much about his class except that he got a crap load of work. I could tell from the number of hours he'd spend working too. He enjoyed it though.
    The last day there was the exhibition of the final projects. All the work from that class looked really good and so did the figure drawings. The other two classes you mentioned might be new to the summer program because I don't remember hearing or seeing anything about them.
    Things to do after class...there's so much to do in the city. One of my favorite things to do was go by the pier (I think it was called Pier 39). There's some really good seafood there (the seagulls are vicious though and might come after your food...they're HUGE too!). You should definitely go to the Pier on July 4th to see the fireworks with a bunch of friends. It was a foggy night so all we could really see were flashes of light through a thick fog...but still great to be there...REALLY packed though. But yeah...there's a lot to do and you'll be close to a lot of good spots.

    Well the city is known to be pretty expensive. You'll be able to find some good deals of you look hard enough though.
    If my guess is correct then you're starting the program within the next couple of weeks, right? If you can, buy all (or at least most) of your supplies BEFORE orientation. Chances are you're gonna go to the Utrecht art supplies store. Right after orientation when they tell you that you can tour or buy supplies, that's when people SWARM to the store and it's really packed. Best to get that out of the way sooner.
