CHARLES XART SCHOOL DOESN’T COME CHEAP.  IT IS A FANTASTICAL EXPERIENCE FOR SOME, FOR OTHERS IT CAN TURN INTO A FINANCIAL NIGHTMARE.  IT IS A RITE OF PASSAGE THAT OPENS THE INVISIBLE DOORS THAT GUARD AN INVISIBLE WORLD. PLEASE PROCEED WITH CAUTION.NEW SLAVERYEDUCATORS AT PARSONS NEW SCHOOL ARE PROTESTING FOR THEIR RIGHTS. HIRED AS PART TIME EMPLOYEES, RARELY RECEIVING A FRACTION OF THE BENEFITS ADMINISTRATORS GAIN WHILST FOSTERING THE CREATIVE ENVIRONMENT ESSENTIAL FOR THE ART SCHOOL TO FUNCTION. LOOKING CLOSER, AN ASSISTANT DIRECTOR MAKES LESS THAN THE AVERAGE STUDENT TUITION.  RANKING IN AMONGST THE 50 MOST EXPENSIVE COLLEGES THE NEW SCHOOL REPRESENTS A BRAND OF CREATIVE EXCLUSIVITY, THE PRICE TAG OF PRESTIGE BECOME CORPORATE DEALINGS IN CREATIVE EDUCATION.NEW X SCHOOLCAPITALIZATION OF CREATIVITY IS NOTHING NEW.  IN THE 2000S THE LONDON INSTITUTE BECAME THE UNIVERSITY OF THE ARTS LONDON. WITH ITS NEW EDUCATIONAL ACCREDITATION UPGRADING, THE UNIVERSITY WENT ON A MASSIVE PROPERTY ACQUISITION RUN ACROSS LONDON. THE HARSH DOWNSIDE OF INSTITUTIONAL TAKEOVERS, IS THAT BUILDINGS WITH DESIGNATED PROGRAMS, LIBRARIES, WORKSHOPS, MACHINERY & RESOURCES BECOME DISPLACED, OR ELIMINATED COMPLETELY, WHEN UPPER MANAGEMENT CHOOSES TO UPROOT THE UNIVERSITY FACILITIES.  THE FANTASY WORLD OF ART & CREATIVITY, JUST LIKE EVERYTHING ELSE FALLS PREY TO CAPITALIST PLAYS & THE VERY PRODUCT THAT IS BEING MARKETED AS TOP CLASS SUFFERS, WHEN STUDENT EDUCATION BECOMES SECONDARY TO CORPORATE RE-BRANDING STRATEGIES & EXPENSIVE SITE BUILDS.INVISIBLE COLLEGEUNDERSTANDING YOUR $200,000 TUITION MONEY WILL CREATE A LOT OF ART.  $200,000 IS MORE THAN ENOUGH MONEY FOR A SMALL START-UP.  SO AS YOU SIT IN A LIFE DRAWING CLASS, KNOW THE POOLED RESOURCES IN YOUR CLASSROOM IS TWO MILLION DOLLARS & UPWARDS. THAT IS THE MAGIC OF THE EXPERIENCE, THE FOSTERING OF THOSE FRIENDSHIPS, BECAUSE LONG AFTER YOU LEAVE THE INSTITUTION, THOSE RELATIONSHIPS ARE THE THINGS YOU WILL COUNT ON MOST IN THE REAL WORLD. SO ENJOY THE EDUCATION.ARTISTIC LIFESTYLE
