Art Institutes


Welcome to The Art Institute of California—Orange County

President’s Note

The passion and drive of our students, faculty, and staff is my motivation as a leader! The Orange County campus is home to a diverse and dynamic group of creative minds. Each and every day there is great imagination and innovation taking place. Our amazing students and faculty are creating new ideas and works of art through both mind and matter. The campus is unique in that we truly partner with our students on their journey. The goal is to build a stronger person and professional. Of all the wonderful things that happen on a daily basis, the one thing I am most proud of is how much our faculty and staff care about the students’ well being while challenging them to be better tomorrow than they are today.

The Orange County campus is a second home for our students; their faculty and staff like an extended family. They walk in with natural gifts where a talented and expert team strives to guide them through the transition from student, to graduate, to creative warrior!
