Learning at Full Sail University has always centered around interaction and the exchange of ideas. Our online curriculum fully embraces this philosophy.
Though the “Big Easy” hasn’t had it so easy of late, the city of New Orleans is rising from the waters to rebuild and resurrect all that was destroyed; a feat that is only possible because of the one thing New Orleans has never lost: its spirit. In fact, the arts community has derived inspiration from the devastation to create new and timely pieces that celebrate the city that once was, and the city that will be. Additionally, museums such as the New Orleans Museum of Art are highlighting the works of local artists above all others. The arts community, much like the city itself, has come together to ensure its own survival. An art student choosing to study in New Orleans will still be able to enjoy the city’s art attractions, especially the three primary neighborhoods that offer innumerable galleries and art spaces. Magazine Street, a six mile stretch of thoroughfare uptown, is home to such galleries as Anton Haardt, Galerie, and Cole Pratt. Moreover, the Contemporary Arts Center and the Heriard-Cimino Gallery are located in another vibrant arts enclave known as the Warehouse District. Finally, the French Quarter, considered the heart of the city and Mardi Gras, also houses many galleries including Vincent Art, Sutton Galleries, and William and Joseph Gallery. Further evidence of the thriving arts scene can be enjoyed at the annual Fresh Arts Festival, put on by the New Orleans Art Council, an organization committed to assisting artists and public art programs through the rebuilding process. Working to recapture the magic that drew thousands of visitors each year, New Orleans remains, and always will remain, one of America’s greatest cities.
