Quincy faculty members combine decades of experience as award-winning artists and design professionals to offer mentoring and guidance for any path you may choose. They continuously exhibit their works, master the latest software, and network with art entrepreneurs to connect you with this fast-paced field. They are also actively engaged in programs of the Coleman Foundation for Entrepreneurship, including the annual Self-Employment in the Arts (SEA) conference and funded projects for student-faculty collaboration with community organizations. Each year, Quincy Graphic Design students attend SEA to learn from and network with successful professionals in a variety of arts occupations.
