About Public Programs

ArtCenter's Public Programs offer a wide range of art and design courses for individuals at every stage of their educational, professional or personal development.

Headquartered at South Campus and holding classes at both campuses, these programs feature a varied and evolving curriculum led by a dedicated faculty of professional artists and designers—many of whom are Art Center alumni themselves.

ArtCenter at Night (ACN), our continuing studies program, offers a wide range of studio-based and academic classes taught by many of the same faculty who teach in the College's degree programs.

ArtCenter for Teens, for teens in grades 9 through 12, helps students discover their creative voices and explore a rich art and design curriculum in a college environment.

ArtCenter for Kids nurtures creativity and fosters an understanding of the art and design process in children in grades 4 through 8.

Summer Institute for Teachers is an intensive, five-day workshop for K–12 educators based on a proven and award-winning methodology, Design-Based Learning, which helps students hone their natural creativity and develop higher-level thinking skills.
