Hi there, I'm currently attending university here in Australia, but next year I plan on going on international exchange to America.

Unfortunately, my art school doesn't offer exchange to places such as Art Center, Ringling or Sheridan.

But it does offer the opportunity to go to UCLA and a heap of other Californian Us.

I'm also thinking of going to Alfred University in New York to the School of Art and Design.

Does anyone have any opinions on these universities in regards to level/quality of art teaching? Or are they places that teach 'modern art' rather than technical/traditional skills?

Or should I just save my money until after university and attend an atelier instead?
