^a year of doing art..any sort of art
life drawing, painting, etc.
sort of testing to see how's your art skill and train you to be prepared of drawing figures in fashion..or if you are going into interior design..train you to draw lines
built a base for those who might lack life drawing skills

I've done the foundation year at Parsons. I would say find a cheaper school if you're only going to do foundation, maybe FIT, certainly Pratt and then use it to bulk up your portfolio. A few of my friends did the Parsons-CSM route and got in...but paying over $30,000 when you can get away with it at $20,000 or even $15,000 for a foundation year was something they regretted--even if only slightly. The Parsons name doesn't carry any weight over there so fuhgetaboutit.

muxu, thanks for explaining..is it compulsory?
Could I get away with it if I have been in art based high-school with 12 compulsory art courses?

thnks for all the great info - i was wondering however about the 'new' course (i'm not sure if its new or its been 'new' for the last two years) the criticism, communication and curation degree... is this just a waste of time doing this at csm? or is the course as well recieved as, say, the fashion degrees..

any feed back would be great!

I'm from the US. Would I have to take A-levels, or could I apply using SAT, AP tests, my GPA, the same as what American schools take?

Also, I understand you take a foundation year before doing fashion, but do you apply for fashion, or just as a general student?

Last question: for my portfolio, I would like to include a mix of fine art, fashion sketches, and photos of garments, but I know some schools only want sketches, and some prefer only fine art. What does CSM like to see? Will knowing how to sew help me get in?
