Refer a Friend Campaign

When you refer someone new to our summer art + design programs, we’ll send you a $25 gift certificate to spend in ACAD’s fabulous bookstore/art supply shop.

How do you collect your reward? It’s easy. Tell your friends to give us your full name when they register. If you're already in our system, you’ll receive a gift of thanks from us shortley after.    

There’s no limit to how many people you can refer. Collect a $25 certificate for every new person you refer. It pays to be a good friend. 

Spotlight Exhibition 

ACAD’s School of Continuing Education is having a party this June and you’re invited!  Spotlight is an exhibition of works created by students in Continuing Education classes.  If you are a past or current ACAD Con Ed student, youth or adult, we want to see what you have created. See your art outside of the classroom and presented in a professional exhibition (with bragging rights to follow). You might even win a prize!  For more information about the exhibition and how to get involved, visit Spotlight on our website.


Choose your own adventure.

Kickstart your creativity with inspiring programs led by practicing artists and supportive mentors.
