The Academy of Art University is still going strong, especially after being around for more than 80 years. This school has developed some of the brightest minds in the entertainment industry as well as in fashion industry. There are nearly 13,000 students who work, study and play within these hallowed halls. The school’s teacher-base consists of over 1,154 part-time teachers and up to 283 full-time teachers. Academy of Art University’s main goal is to prepare its students for a successful career in communications, in liberal arts and in entertainment. As of today, it has churned-out a plethora of talent. Some of this talent has been involved with the making of huge Hollywood hits such as “Sully,” “Avatar,” “Big Hero 6,” “Boss Baby,” and “Dunkirk.”
Adriana Georgiades, a fashion student with the Academy of Arts University, has just won a scholarship for $1,500 by participating in the one of the school’s writing contests. In addition to the $1,500, she has earned an internship with TRC Marketing. The Fashion Journalism Scholarship Contest excepted thousands of entries during the spring semester, but Georgiades was the one who stood at the pinnacle in the end. The 23-year-old was more than excited to win the contest because she has a strong passion for what she does. This contest was all about the future of fashion during the social-media age.
Fashion is everywhere in society now days. “We need to find a way to maintain the tenants of fairness and objectivity that’s found in journalism,” said Georgiades. This young woman is actually from Johannesburg, South Africa, but she relocated to the US to further her fashion education. She attended South Africa’s Rhodes University. Sports blogging was her main job at this fine school, and it matched her love for being a die-hard Liverpool fan. Georgiades noticed that there wasn’t much talk about fashion while attending Rhodes University and this is why she moved to beautiful San Francisco to pursue a career in fashion.
The Academy of Art University has been around since 1929, and it was founded by a painter named Richard S. Stephens. Thanks to its passion for the arts, this school has made a huge imprint on society.
