What Villa’s All About

With a variety of academic programs, our real strength lies in our studio-based education, a 8:1 student to faculty ratio, and educators who bring their real world experience into the classroom. Our faculty consists of working artists, animators, musicians, writers and designers who all place a heavy emphasis on teaching students how to use their talents in real world experiences.
