Serving as a gateway to the College's degree programs, Public Programs—whose name changes to ArtCenter Extension (ACX) this summer—offers a wide range of hands-on courses for everything from advertising to zine-making. Headquartered at South Campus but holding classes at both campuses, our non-degree programs feature a varied and evolving curriculum taught by a dedicated faculty of practicing artists and designers, many of whom are ArtCenter alumni.
The College’s extension courses offer classes to anyone seeking an access point to ArtCenter’s vast creative resources.
Classes in creativity, innovation and visual literacy for students in grades 4–8.
Art and design is a viable career path. And even if it’s something you simply enjoy, why shouldn’t you have a chance to pursue it?Dana L. Walker-JuickManaging Director of Public Programs
