the creative work of artists and designers impact every sector in every international economy and are evident in every home, shopping mall, video arcade, magazine, website and business you encounter. There are endless opportunities for those who possess the unique and sought after skills of the artist/designer - the combination of conceptual skills to solve complex problems in innovative ways and the ability to bring craft, technical and media related skills to the project at hand.
AtACAD we can help you assemble and refine the skills you have now and introduce you to established and innovative processes, materials and ideas about how art and design works out there - in the real world. You'll find yourself in a vibrant and supportive community of artists and designers who are pasionate about art and willing to take risks. People like you, who think and express themselves visually and intend to focus on art and deign for the rest of their lives.
You'll spend four years immersing yourself in the culture, history, theory and techniques of art and design. You'll have most of what you know about art right now turned on its head. You'll be expected to stretch your imagination and your abilities to the brink. You'll work very hard. And you'll love it.
