“The college admissions and funding process is much different than it was when I was a student decades ago. I did not go to art school, so add another layer of differences (and ignorance) when I approached that new world with my daughter. Elaine quickly and clearly explains the art school world and helps parents and prospective students get on track. Her assistance in preparing for Portfolio Days, for which schools to focus on, and for submitting applications was very helpful.” ~ Bill, high school parent
“I needed help with the application process to art school, as it is very different from the normal application process. Elaine was very helpful in figuring out what schools would be able to fit into what I wanted, and even told me about some colleges I may have not known about otherwise.
What I really liked about her approach was that she was always there when I needed to ask her a question, and always remembered the schools I was applying to and where I was in the process. She was extremely knowledgeable and helpful but was not overbearing at all. I definitely recommend her to others beginning the art school application process. There are tons of complicated bits and pieces, and hard decisions to make. Elaine very easily guided me, without ever pushing me in a direction that I didn’t decide on myself.” ~ Des, high school art student
“Elaine’s blog, ArtCollegeLife, is an amazing gift for developing artists and designers looking for guidance as they consider college and their next steps. As an artist myself — and adjunct faculty and former enrollment specialist at an art & design college — I can’t speak highly enough of this great resource. Elaine is a wonderful person, and caring professional, for making this possible and available.” ~ Thom, art college faculty
“Working with Elaine helped my son better understand what industrial design programs would be the best fit for him. The process Elaine used, interviewing my son, researching schools and helping him see his options was so helpful prior to the application process.” ~ Shelly, high school parent
“Thank you so much for all your help and support! I wouldn’t have been as organized and couldn’t have done it as well without you!” ~ Morgan, high school student
“Your presentation was fantastic and shed quite a bit of light on the art school process, which type of schools would be the right fit and everything else in between.” ~ Susan, high school art teacher
“It was a pleasure to have you speak with students about opportunities many may have not considered or given serious attention to.” ~ Samantha, high school counselor
