The CCA Arts Review is a general arts review produced and written by CCA students and a product of the advanced Writing and Literature seminar on arts journalism. Over the course of their years at CCA, our students become experts in their fields, often taking ten to fifteen classes in their majors. We firmly believe in the artist-thinker and that our students should write for the general public about their concerns, ideas and likes and dislikes. It is important at a college dedicated to art and design that we make sure that our students are not only prepared for the rigors of their chosen fields, but also that they are capable of writing reviews, artist profiles, interviews, manifestoes that speak to and challenge both their peers and the public at large. This seems the basis of what it means to be an educated citizen, artist and designer in our world.
