I think the school itself might be a bit pricey for students without a lot of money. My daughter attended CCS for a year, waiting to get into SCAD in Savannah. Even with room and board, SCAD was a better value and layout. CCS isn't in the best neighborhood, and the girls in her room (6 in a room) were... More

Sitting behind The Detroit Institute of Arts on the College for Creative Studies campus is the lovely Josephine Ford Sculpture Garden, named for the only grand daughter of Henry Ford. Here you'll find around a dozen sculptures from a number of different artists, arranged throughout the gardens. My favorite pieces were by Etienne Martin, Alexander Calder, Raymond Duchamp-Villon and Beverly... More

I enjoyed my visit to the campus for a Kresge Information session. The conference, Lecture spaces was comfortable and nice looking. The audio system was quite good and I was impressed by the mini mics, shaped like small tubes, they had at the table so the ladies could be heard while seated.

I love the artistic atmosphere at this college, but feel the need for them to develop a program more accommodating for their working, part-time students.

I don't know if this is a place to visit unless you've organized something but CCS has nailed Detroit 2.0. Its all about finding abandoned buildings and adapting them for next use - building new applied arts and industry in previously derelict areas. Great respect for them in the past and what they are doing in the future.

Recently visited CCS and was thoroughly impressed by the top-notch art work done by the students. Staff, faculty and students were all friendly and helpful when we asked questions. It's a small campus in one of the nicest areas of Detroit (near the DIA and Wayne State) and very easy to get around. Anyone interested in a career in art... More

I am not an Art critic. I like what I like and I don't like what I don't like. But the school is filled with all type of Artist. I had the pleasure of meeting (2) and Loved their work. Had the opportunity to purchase from one.
