I always mention the Southwest School of Art when I am being interviewed, because this is the place were all the magic happened to me in 2006.
When I moved to live in San Antonio I was looking to do something I wanted to do for a long time, I was very happy to find out this beautiful city, San Antonio, had a wonderful school were I could take some art classes and in my case mostly Metal classes.
Since the first day I went to the school I knew this place will stay in my heart forever. The teachers and staff are so friendly and helpful and I felt very comfortable there.
Southwest School of Art is a nationally recognized leader in the arts education and offers different programs to more than 4000 adults, children and teens annually. The school offers classes and workshops taught by outstanding local, regional and national artists.
The school will offer a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree starting in the Fall of 2013.
The Ursuline Campus of Southwest School of Art
is now on the National Register of historic Places.
The Ursuline convent was established in 1851, when seven catholic nuns arrived in San Antonio to start San Antonio's first school for girls.
