Art Institutes Students

An Introduction To The Art Institutes

The Art Institutes is a system of over 50 schools across North America. We provide hands-on education in the creative and applied arts by offering master's, bachelor's and associate's degree programs as well as non-degree programs. For employers, we provide an important source of culinary, design, fashion and media arts professionals.

At The Art Institutes schools, our curriculum is carefully scrutinized and developed by industry professionals and prominent employers who tell us what skills are needed in the workplace. This means that your education is relevant, practical and hands-on. In fact, the classroom often mimics what you'll find on the job. Members of our faculty also continue to work professionally in the fields they are teaching*, so you'll have an opportunity to learn what's currently happening in your chosen field. In all of our programs, technology and media help you to realize your vision.

Every Art Institutes school has a Career Services department with staff dedicated to helping students market themselves and providing support services for students to use in pursuing employment opportunities in their chosen field. From helping you pursue part-time job opportunities while you are attending school to actively supporting soon-to-be graduates' job search, faculty and staff are committed to providing students with the support they need.

In 2012, the eight Art Institutes schools in California (located in San Diego, Santa Monica, N. Hollywood, San Bernardino, Santa Ana, San Francisco, Sacramento, and Sunnyvale) combined to create a single college of art and design within Argosy University, known as the College of Creative Arts and Design. As part of the transition, the Art Institutes schools in California relinquished their national accreditation and are now governed by the regional accreditation held by Argosy University. Argosy University is accredited by the Senior College and University Commission of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (985 Atlantic Avenue, Suite 100, Alameda, California, 94501, http://www.wascsenior.org).

Argosy University’s College of Creative Arts and Design will continue its relationship with The Art Institutes system and will now merge its enthusiasm for education in the creative and applied arts with the history, tradition and passion of Argosy University's undergraduate and graduate-level programs.

*Credentials and experience levels vary by faculty and instructors.

The contest, which set to reveal Miami’s top upcoming design talents, announced a winner on August 12 and was featured in the Sun Sentinel blog SouthFlorida.com.


Oriana Cascarano was the first place winner receiving a $1,500 scholarship through The Education Foundation for “Spine Lamp,” a geometric luminaire built with 24 lighting pieces, inspired by the human spine.


Calvin Hrezik was the runner-up contestant receiving a $600 scholarship from Florida lighting sales agency Light’n Up for “Deconstructed Deco,” a piece influenced by Miami’s Art Deco architecture. His lamp was crafted to resemble an industrial skeletal cage, unveiling the framework of Miami’s Art Deco foundation.


Both Oriana and Calvin are students in the Bachelor of Fine Arts, Interior Design program at Miami International University of Art & Design.


The original designs were evaluated by a team of judges from Farrey’s and Miami International University of Art & Design which were reviewed on the aspects of originality, concept development, expected marketability and presentation. The class project was supervised by Professor Sable Stroud and Academic Department Director for Design, Ricardo Navarro.
