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.
