Art Center At Night

Art Center at Night (ACN) is our continuing studies program offering opportunities to learn on a course-by-course basis with a renowned faculty of art and design practitioners.

Established in 1931 as Art Centerís Evening Division, this program continues to serve the greater community through an open enrollment policy. ACN is popular with accomplished professionals who want to sharpen their skills or learn new ones, with those just beginning to explore the visual arts, and with students whose goal is to apply to the Collegeís full-time degree programs.

Students study under professional artists and designers in courses that reflect the same high standards, rigor and professional relevance found in our core programs.

Many prospective students to our full-degree programs take ACN classes to explore, gain valuable skills and develop an entering portfolio.

Nearly half of Art Center students attend ACN prior to applying to the degree programs; scholarships are available to students with financial need whose goal is to†become a full-time Art Center student.

We offer nearly 200 classes in the areas of advertising, the business of design, entertainment design, environmental design, film, fine art, graphic design, illustration, letterpress, photography, product and transportation design.

Although a majority of ACN classes are offered at night, a selection of offerings are available during the day and on weekends.

In addition to classes at our Hillside and South campuses in Pasadena, we offer off-site courses in professional art and design environments such as Oakley, Mazda Design North America and Mitsubishi Motors R&D Center.

Designed in conjunction with our educational partners, these courses provide Art Center at Night students with unprecedented access to the working design world.
