Enjoyed working with and helping my fellow students
Digital Media Studio Assistant (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAFebruary 3, 2014
As a student and part-time employee at SFAI, I was able to get a lot out of my position at the DMS. I was able to work on my own projects, while simultaneously helping other students and friends on their projects. A very positive place to work with very little negatives about the job.
Pros
Relaxed work environment, friendly people

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAMay 8, 2013
This was a student position while I was attending the undergrad program. Always a great time! Was able to work on art projects if the day was slow and we were constantly surrounded by wonderful artists. I can not say enough great things about SFAI!!!
Pros
slow paced and laid back, amazing co-workers

I was only a MFT trainee for a short time and the program was disbanded due to lack of funding.

Real Art
Fine Art Instructor (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAApril 20, 2012
It is very rare to be in a place where artists teach. In the years that I learned and worked at San Francisco Art Institute, it was a place to discuss and live art.

Very rare.

To this day, I am devoted to the institute and the teachers who have devoted their lives to passing on the tradition of fine art.
Pros
the history and faculty.
