I applied to cooper union, meaning i did the massive home test and all the little questions and what not, and afterward i realized that i only was interested because it seems so prestigious without having any real idea as to what kind of school it is.
I would like to know what areas it is strong in, ie. traditional fine arts vs. modern art etc. is it going to be abstract theory or are they going to be strict? innovative? slack? traditional?
I am really looking for a solid foundation in traditional training through life drawing, color theory, perspective, anatomy, all the good stuff. at the same time i hope they are innovative and push creativity
do you think cooper is a good school for this?
any and all comments are welcomed and appreciated.
