With a range of innovative courses in art and design, ACX (formerly ArtCenter at Night) offers a world of possibilities.

ACX—the College’s part-time continuing studies program—is ideal for students, adult learners and practicing professionals who want to refine or learn new skills.

ACX is where many students first explore the educational opportunities ArtCenter offers, take courses and create projects to build their portfolios for admission.

Also open to art and design professionals and those new to the creative process, ACX offers a wide range of challenging, studio-based and academic classes taught by many of the same faculty teaching in the College’s degree programs.
