COVID-19 update 11/20/20:

At ArtCenter, the safety and wellbeing of our students, faculty and staff is our top priority. Due to the fluidity of the COVID-19 situation—and in step with the most recent state and local guidelines—we cannot offer in-person courses at the College at this time. As a result, all Fall term 2020 courses—including ACX, ACX Teens and ACX Kids—will be taught remotely. We know this news may be disappointing, but these restrictions are for the safety of everyone.

Spring 2021 registration begins February 1
