Hear what our students have to say about their time at The Book Shop:




"In this class, I learned some new perspectives from which to examine my work. I think I will end up with a good book if I keep going. It's a great class. Someone I know who works for UCLA told me that this class is WAY better than the UCLA extension one."

B. Landis-Tipton
LA Intro/Fall '18

"The instructors provide great feedback, and make you want to try harder each week. The intro class feels like a great set up for the real learning and challenges that lie ahead. Take the plunge!"

T. Bryant
LA Intro/Fall '18

"If you are curious about if creative advertising is for you, check out The Book Shop. You get to study under real working professionals, learn the essential tools, and at the end, you'll have a portfolio - all at an affordable tuition."

G. Augusto
LA Intermediate/Fall '18

"My work has gotten much stronger in this class. This is one of the few programs where you'll learn communally: you learn from the feedback your own work gets, but you also get to see how others expand and progress their ideas. This vicarious learning is rare, incredibly helpful, and more often than not, really entertaining."

C. Hanna
LA Advanced One/Fall'18

"My instructor was knowledgeable about advertising and working with multiple agencies, gave honest constructive criticism with no sugar coating, and treated everyone and every group equally. The Book Shop is great! Professional Creative Directors teaching and sharing their knowledge and experience about advertising. And, we get to have class in an actual Agency."

A. Pancho
LA Advanced Two/Fall '18

"In Teams, I Learned to hone down ideas into easy to understand portfolio pieces. This semester has been amazing. My team, we get along so well and are supportive of each other's process. I've worked so hard this semester and it definitely shows. When I tell people about The Book Shop, I tell them the instructors are the best. Almost uncanny how accessible they are and involved they get in making our work its best."

B. Krajcir
LA Teams/Fall '18

"My favorite thing about this class is building a campaign from scratch to (nearly) done in just 9 weeks. And my instructor goes the extra mile 100% of the time to make sure everyone in the class is getting what they need from him. He keeps things on track while keeping it fun. I've walked out of almost every Teams class with a campaign that is either ready to go in my book or almost ready. Book shop is an awesome way to learn everything you need to know to get your start in advertising while still working full time. The teachers are smart, working professionals who truly care about seeing you succeed."

L. McMahon
LA Teams/Fall '18

"I feel like this Copy class gave me a huge creative boost which I couldn't be more thankful for. The Book Shop has taught me new skills which have helped sharpen my practice. I feel more excited about my future and do believe this will lead me to a successful career."

M. Khatri
Copy/Spring '18

"In this class, I learned more about how data can be and should be incorporated into the creative process. My thinking is not as static and moving forward it's about thinking of all the different mediums. It's about thinking conceptually, differently, big and in all different formats. Taking The Book Shop has lit that fire up again."

S. Alvarez
LA Digital Creative/Fall '18

"With this crash course, I am making it my priority and I know that after teams, I will have a great portfolio. If you are an AD, Take the Art direction crash course! It's a major part of the advertising world that should always be paired with concept and writing."

A. Diaz
AD/Layout Crash Course/Fall '18
