Laguna College of Art + Design

President's Message


Welcome to Laguna College of Art + Design (LCAD). This may be the portal to your future. For more than half a century, LCAD has remained located in Laguna Beach, a destination that needs no introductions. But LCAD’s reputation goes well beyond our beautiful coastal city that has attracted artists for over 100 years. Our campus will provide  you with connections to a far-reaching creative community. Our relationships with California’s arts and entertainment industries will become your relationships.


Coming to LCAD means being among the most talented art students and instructors. It means being in small, intimate classes with cutting-edge computer labs that enable you to integrate your classical training with leading technology. It means you receive the highest caliber art and design education you can expect. Put simply, coming to LCAD means that you are going places.


LCAD has redefined the modern college of art and design. At LCAD, art school is not just a place where you mostly learn the theories behind what makes art and design work. We are the college that teaches you specific skills with tangible outcomes. LCAD leads the way in providing a skills-driven education that is committed to fundamental principles. Our track record proves that your mastery of classical skills and modern techniques will create unlimited opportunities for you.


I invite you to join us in helping you create your own success story.
