Art Center at 80

Welcome

Happy 80th anniversary to us!

Tink Adams, 1930

Eighty years ago, Edward “Tink” Adams had a revolutionary vision of a school that would teach real-world skills to artists and designers. In 1930, the Art Center School opened its doors at West Seventh Street in Los Angeles. We’ve been making history ever since.

We hope you’ll join us in commemorating eight decades of art and design education. Here’s to the next 80 years.
