May 18, 2013 — Leave a comment

Modeled on the teacher/apprentice model the beautiful Cranbrook Academy of Art is an art makers utopian dream where all students and teachers live and work on the same street in a stunning European village and park setting. Yearly, a mere 8-10 students are accepted in each department. Don’t be fooled by its good looks. Founded by Eliel Saarinen and George Booth it remains one of the most prestigious graduate programs in the country. A word to the wise; Students applying here should have a mature body of work under their belts.  Worth a day trip to see the Saarinen House and
