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.
