Alberta College of Art and Design 

For more than 80 years, Alberta College of Art and Design has educated some of Canada's most potent designers, artists and cultural producers. As one of only four degree-granting and freestanding institutions of art and design education in Canada, Alberta College understands that theirs is a unique responsibility.

Alberta College of Art and Design has charted its course as an institution that makes a difference; an institution that supports and leads the development of culture and innovation in the broadest sense and provokes thought and action in the most optimistic directions. The college cultivates debate, explore together and stir culture for themselves and for the external community.

Alberta College of Art and Design is located in Calgary on the North Hill overlooking the Bow River and the downtown skyline, in a 245,000 square foot building that was designed in 1973 specifically as an art college. ACAD's close proximity to downtown, via light rail transit, is a distinct advantage to our students, providing them with easy access to Calgary's galleries, museums and cultural events.

Alberta College of Art and Design is committed to a solid studio-based experience for students in fine art, design and new media - an experience balanced with relevant, complementary liberal studies and practical theory. The result is a rigorous studio program, which produces innovative thinkers, creative problem solvers, and visually talented students. ACAD creates a learning environment rich in character and extensive in quantity, quality and professional capability for its student body of artistic thinkers.

It gets you social gatherings, people who go...

This is a great school! Know what you want to do in life and it is possible to achieve it. You do not have to be a professional artist after leaving the school, there are many other options too. However you need to be serious about what you do want to do and it must relate for fine art (or design if you are in that stream) after all, that is wha...

Make sure you want to be a "professional artist". If you don't, some of the faculty will see you as less important and worth their time. And they will voice this. Loudly. There *are* some exceptional teachers at ACAD, you just have to find them and somehow ensure you stick with them for the 4 years. (Often 5 years, as the registrar likes to play...
