As a branch of the University of New Haven diversity and active involvement in the community are key principals of our education. At Lyme Academy students strive to live out these principals through fine and studio art. After a vigorous freshman year artists can chose a major in Painting, Sculpting, Drawing (with minors in either Sculpture or Painting) and Illustration, and upon senior year will have the opportunity to create their own project complete with an individualized studio. Outside of class students can participate in a variety of different activities such as lectures, concerts, therapy dog visits, trips, and other fun events the Student Council hosts. Many of the students, myself included, are huge fans of cartoons and anime, so anybody interested in animation will fit in well here although animation itself is not offered as a major.
Lyme Academy is located in picturesque Old Lyme, CT, with housing available either on-campus across the street or off-campus in Old Saybrook at Post and Main apartments. The area is very safe ( with a 0% crime rate), and police check around the campus regularly to ensure everything is fine. There are multiple resources nearby such as a fire station, emergency centers, art galleries, shops, and places of worship. Your student ID card can also be used at several places for either free admission or a discount on prices.
Several drawbacks I can list to attending Lyme Academy are its competitiveness, high undergraduate tuition costs and fees ($26,904 as of 2012 according to their website), several small issues in the past regarding offensive social media posts, and the fact that the school is located within the range of a nuclear power plant site. However, the staff and faculty are widely available to help parents and students with any difficulties they might be facing, and are quick to respond to a situation. New students and beyond are also instructed safety procedures in the event of an emergency. The goal of the University of New Haven is to ensure the safety and respect of everyone on campus.
Overall Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts is a fine choice for those persuing a degree in fine and studio art. While not the cheapest pick of the bunch there are plenty of financial aid opportunities available, and most students remain at the school for the full four years needed to obtain their BFA. We welcome diverse minds and a drive for creativity, and the ability to be open to new ideas. Whether you strive to create art simply for aesthetic purposes or to make a statement this college will help equip you will the skills needed to become a successful artist for the future.

Advice? i would tell myself to quit worrying and to just have fun! I'm the type of person who stresses over every little thing, and it keeps me back from enjoying my life. I ended up at a wonderful school, with wonderful people, doing what I love, and I couldn't be in a better place. Sometimes its ok to relax and just enjoy what you have before you worry about what you don't.
I would tell myself that I would love my education as an artist and to just look forward to the blesseing of being able to do what I really love.
Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts is an intimate, professional, and intelligent college for a dedicated art student.
The students are mostly friendly and free-spirited individuals. They are united in their passion for visual arts, but each has his or her own unique interests. They inspire and challenge eachother.
Because of its small size, Lyme Academy doesn't have clubs, but art shows are popular, as are themed exhibitions and holiday get-togethers.
Lyme Academy is not only educational, but enlightening. Students are taught the fundamentals of visual arts and encouraged to consider how what they create will impact the art world. It is a small college, so the student body is well-connected and teachers recognize individuals for their unique interests and styles. On the downside, the cost is through the roof, and the Academy's strong suit is definitely more traditional arts; it could use some improvement in its illustration department, and might even consider adding an animation major as an option.
Artists are often stereotyped as being laid-back, absent, liberal people; always smoking, drinking coffee, and dressing in alternative clothing. They are also commmonly thought of as snobbish people who refuse to accept critique because others simply don't see their "vision". At Lyme, these stereotypes (as is often the case with stereotypes) do not go entirely unsupported. But there are a variety of personalities at Lyme and many students do deviate from the stereotypes.
This school was not originally my first choice. However I wish I had known beforehand what a wonderful education it would provide.
I'm blessed to have been able to attend this school and I'm glad I didn't chose another.
It is important to relize beforehand that Lyme Academy is a very dedicated institution. If your coming to art school to get out of working hard, this is the wrong place to be.
The most disadvantageous aspect of Lyme Academy is its lack of campus housing. Without housing, the students are required to commute and it detracts from the "college experience" of living in a dorm surrounded by other like-minded students.
Before a person decides to come to this school they should relize it is a small and close community.
The people are awesome, but there are no on campus dorms and no partying.
This is a very intesnse school for the artist who is willing to really put themselves into learning more about traditional art.
