The Academic Fusion of Art and Athletics

There are several skills that can be applied to virtually all aspects of one’s life. These are time management, organization, communication, criticism, and drive. The Academy of Art University strives to combine art and athletics in a way that builds upon these skills.

The Academy of Art University was founded in San Francisco, California during 1929, by Richard S. Stephens. At the time it was know as the Academy of Advertising. The Academy has stayed in the family since then, and is currently being run by Elisa Stephens since 1992.

The ability to manage one’s time is crucial to any task. How we handle organization affects how efficient we are. Being unorganized is a tax on time and effort. If you are organized, you’ll feel like you have more time and energy.

As you might expect from a Californian academy, the campus is a breathtaking environment. While the main campus is inside the city, amazing weather and beautiful scenery are right around the corner. It is the perfect location for arts and athletics.

Communication and criticism are very important to the athlete and artist. You can’t do everything alone, so important social skills are a must. The criticism peers provide will improve your skills by letting you know what you need to improve the most. There are always people we can learn from and get feedback from, it’s important to know how to work with them properly.

The school offers a variety of degrees from associate’s to master’s in a number of subjects. Most of the degrees are in the arts. Subjects ranging from the Fine Arts to Architecture. There are many other subjects to take on the side, such as fashion.

The saying goes, “Do. Or do not. There is no try.”, but that is not the entire story. You need the drive and the ambition in order to “Do.”. The ability to put forth the effort to accomplish a task, to “just do it”, is no small skill, but it can be learned like any other. Art Academy brings the experience needed to do that.
