We believe that learning environments should both inspire creativity and have a meaningful impact on their surrounding community. 

From wooded acres in the San Rafael Hills to adaptive reuse in downtown Pasadena, ArtCenter’s two campuses provide future artists and designers with a wide array of creative learning opportunities enriched by the creative and academic resources within the surrounding communities and the greater Los Angeles area. 


Hillside Campus

Located on 165 wooded acres in Pasadena, this modernist steel-and-glass structure has been home to ArtCenter since 1976.

South Campus

Established in 2004, this evolving complex includes historic supersonic wind tunnel, a former post office facility and a renovated office building.

Master Plan

The College’s vision for embodying the conservatory spirit through rich intercultural and transdisciplinary dialogue and physical expansion. 

See ArtCenter in action.

A hub of innovation and creative institutions, Los Angeles is one of the world's great art capitals.

With campus buildings designed by Modernist architect Craig Ellwood, the campus itself had a significant impact on me as a person and artist.
