The largest accredited, private art university in America is The Academy of Art University. The university offers an environment where students are taught by professionals who work in their field of study outside of the school. There are thirty areas to receive a degree in at the school and students can attend on the San Francisco campus, or complete all classes online.
The school has a no barrier admissions meaning all that’s needed to attend is a passion for art, and the drive to develop skills in your desired field. Since its beginning in 1929, the university has had a strong belief in building community and supporting each other. Students are encouraged to collaborate and build a support system to help each other while being mentored by expert teachers. Students are taught more than art; the university holds itself to the highest ethical standards, and teaches its students to have the same standards in all areas of life.
The University believes its students learn best from teachers who work leading careers in their industry. One of the university’s teachers at the top of his profession is Jan Philip Cramer. He is the head of animation at the digital domain for the Academy of Art University. Outside of teaching, Cramer has overseen the animation aspects of several blockbuster hits including X-Men: Days of Future Past, Deadpool, Resurgence, and popular smash hit, 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Much to disbelief, Cramer was able to fulfill one of his biggest dreams yet, and was asked to oversee the animation for the new Avengers movie, The Avengers: Infinity War. Cramer gives most of the credit for his success to The Academy of Art University, who helped shape his path for his desired career, and awarded him the Academy of Art University’s Emerging Artist Alumni Award in 2011. Because the university hires teachers who work at the top of their industry, Cramer had mentors who helped him achieve his dream job in movie animation.
Cramer has several movies to look forward too such as Captain Marvel and Ant-Man and the Wasp. His career is just taking off!
