    A few art teachers of mine highly recommended it, and tried getting me to go there. They had students attend in the past, and everyone had nothing but good things to say about it. Don't know much about it myself though, but it's definitely worth looking into.

    A friend of mine did her foundation year at Emily Carr... but moved here to Calgary to finish up at ACAD. She said she enjoyed her ACAD experience alot more. But that's just one case.

    Yes, I graduated from there in '95. I was in the film/animation program though.

    I loved every minute of it.

    However, I wouldn't say it's a great school by any means. It dosn't seem to have a very good reputation for fine arts - in Canada Concordia and NASCAD are the top dogs when it comes to painting.

    Emily Carr is pretty artsy-fartsy. Everyone who goes there in the fine arts program compains of the same thing - the complete and utter lack of teaching 'technique'. So it's a pretty do-it-yourself kind of scene.

    If you're vocationallly oriented (an aspiring Concept Illustrator, for example), you might be better off somewhere more technically challenging like RISD or Art Center. Everything I've learned about illustration I learned second hand from a friend of mine who was a RISD grad.

    Emily Carr is a good school, just not a great one. It's got a superb campus and is in one of the most beautiful parts of Vancouver. It was a treat just walking there every day. The scene there is small, so it's got a realluintimate vibe, which is nice if you're into that.If you're confident you can learn on your own, and you like the idea of going there, I don't see any reason not to. If you do go, I highly recommend any courses taught by Sam Carter - especailly his Colour Theory course.

    Best of luck.
