You can study and make art through Extended Studies at ACAD during the evening, on weekends, and at full-day workshops of varying lengths. Through convenient scheduling, Extended Studies courses give you many ways to pursue your visual arts and design education.
As an Extended Studies student, you will have access to the Luke Lindoe Library at ACAD and can purchase your supplies through the ACAD Bookstore.
ACAD is one of the few facilities in Canada where you can try your hand at a full range of art/craft disciplines such as jewellery making, print media and textiles, as well as media arts and design. Adult credit-free courses are offered during the evenings and on weekends during the academic year and for full days during the summer. Credit-free courses provide a more relaxed environment for your learning that maintains the depth of our credit offerings without the marks. They are taught by practicing artists in our excellently equipped studios.
ACAD offers two Certificates of Achievement within our Adult Credit-free section. The Graphic Design certificate provides solid grounding in the fundamentals in the field. Jewellery Enhanced Skills broadens the range of technical abilities for those who work in the industry or as artist metalsmiths.
