Industry Open House (IOH) is a time-honored tradition at Laguna College of Art and Design (LCAD). This annual event hosted by LCAD Career Services provides a rare and exclusive opportunity for select industry professionals to visit LCAD for access to the next generation of top professional artists and designers.
LCAD’s BFA programs in Animation, Graphic Design + Digital Media, Game Art, Illustration, and Illustration in Entertainment Design represent an important cross section of our degree programs that are designed to ensure that ideas of all scopes and sizes are upheld by expert abilities. Our innovative Foundation Program trains first-year students in the fundamentals of drawing and composition, laying a solid foundation for the acquisition of contemporary skill sets. All LCAD students receive a sound liberal arts education that bolsters their preparations for careers in the professional world.
In addition to formal classroom instruction, our faculty of distinguished professional animators, artists, authors, designers, filmmakers, game artists, illustrators, photographers, and scholars ensure that our curricula prepare our students for current industry demands while training on the most state-of-the-art software available. Additionally, LCAD’s small student-to-faculty ratio facilitates our commitment to personal attention for each and every student.
