The Graduate Art program at Art Center College of Design is based on intensive studio practice and rigorous academic coursework. The success of the program is made possible by an extraordinarily low faculty-to-student ratio that provides students with the assistance and feedback they need to refine and achieve their artistic goals. Faculty and students are artists of all genres—film, video, photography, painting, sculpture, performance and installation. A significant number of alumni have achieved national and international acclaim, and many return to share their insights and expertise as visiting faculty and guest lecturers.
