I was an ICON student since my junior year. I started art later than any other students. First reason I started art was to show college that I did an extracurricular work as an art. However, after I learned in ICON, I see myself enjoying drawing art and design. Now I decide to pursue art as my career and ICON became the pathfinder to me. -Kyunho Kim, Northwood High School

I attended Icon Art & Design studio’s Friday programs from the summer of 2005 until summer of 2010. Although I started the program out of mere curiosity in the world of art, the experience I had from the studio was paramount. For a bland, repressed humanities student like me, every hour I spent during the five years of time at Icon was like a blissful escape into a world of expression and creativity. The one-to-one guidance Director Lee provided not only improved my skills in diverse areas and genres of studio art but also in fully expressing myself. Director Lee guided me and encouraged me throughout the five years of my time there to express who I am and be myself. By 2010, she was more than a teacher, but a mentor and a friend. The experiences and the strengths I gained from being a part of her class helped me find out about what kind of an individual I am. The work I produced in Icon and the conviction I was able to build helped me get accepted into various prestigious universities and institutions such as Wesleyan University, UC Berkeley, Carleton College, and Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute. I am always fond of the memories I had in Icon even to this day and will never regret every second I spent there. Thank you Icon Art & Design, for helping me develop my character and find out more about myself through art. -Clemence Dongwoo Kim, Wesleyan University.

Great academy for students who want to dive deeper into design. The faculties are both knowledgeable and reliable which I had the fortunate of getting while I was a student here.  - Daniel Baek, CCS

I attended Icon for a year and half. I had no experience of any kind of art before, and Icon showed me guidance of taking a first step as a designer. I attended Icon to learn how to design, but it actually helped me design the path of becoming a designer. Not only I learned how to make a portfolio and get into school, but I also learned something bigger than that, and I truly appreciate it. - Aiden Park, ACCD
