We all take different paths to reach the destination that’s right for us. To get there, we have to ask some tough questions. Cranbrook Academy of Art has found that sometimes “no” can be the right answer. Applications are being accepted through February 1.
- No Teachers: Artists-in-residence mentor students and individually determine each course of study.
- No Classes: Cranbrook is a studio-based education where the structure and rhythm develops from the working departments.
- No A’s, B’s, C’s or D’s: Cranbrook’s academic structure expects creative risk-taking and personal responsibility.
- No Undergraduates: The Academy is dedicated exclusively to graduate education.
- No Crowds: With only 150 students and 10 artists-in-residence, everything at Cranbrook is available at your fingertips.
- No Strangers: Cranbrook’s students and artists-in-residence live and work side by side. This is a true community, not merely a campus.
- No Ugly Buildings: Cranbrook’s campus is a National Historic Landmark. Its remarkable architecture and design are generally regarded as among the finest of the 20th century.
- No Doubt: From Tony Rosenthal to Nick Cave, Charles and Ray Eames to Lorraine Wild, Eero Saarinen to Hani Rashid, the impact of Cranbrook’s educational model on art, design, and architecture has been profound.
- No Other: Cranbook’s educational model is unique in America.
