Elizabeth Daddazio and Kiri Østergaard Leonard at the Pratt Institute Campus, 2011
My experience with attending Pratt Institute for a year was without question one of the best year's of my life, but if experiences teaches us one thing it is that it differs from person to person.
Some people have the time of their lives in situations where others are miserable. Therefore I don't want to tell you to do one thing or another but I do want to tell you there are alternatives to obtaining a well rounded art education.

The internet is ripe with many intriguing alternatives for boosting your artistic abilities. There are a wide selection of Mentorships with professional artists as well as online art schools, academies and ateliers where you pick and choose your classes and programs dependent on which area you need the most help in.
