From Laguna College of Art & Design

Since its founding in 1961, Laguna College of Art + Design (LCAD) has grown significantly to include ten undergraduate majors, three graduate degree programs, and eight minors. LCAD’s campus also has grown to include seven sites throughout Laguna Canyon and Laguna Beach that accommodate its student population of nearly 700 full-time students.

Our mission is to prepare individuals for careers as creative artists and designers in a culturally and ethnically diverse world through a curriculum that emphasizes acquiring skills based on observation, representation, and concept development, while embracing challenges of new, innovative technologies. The College is committed to offering its curriculum through accredited degree programs that imaginatively combine studio work with academic studies, and to sharing its resources with the broader community through continuing education and exhibition programs.
