Welcome to Visual College of Art and Design of Vancouver! VCAD began as a branch of the Victoria College of Art and Design, which has taught artists and imaginative people to follow their creative passions for more than 35 years. Building on these creative roots, VCAD has rapidly grown into its own innovative and dynamic Vancouver-based college of creative applied arts but is now independent of its progenitor. VCAD's Art and Design diploma programs cover the fashion, graphic and web design, interior design, and animation industries.
The constant evolution of digital design leads employers within the industry to continually seek out only the best-trained candidates for the job. Our Applied Arts curriculum has been developed to ensure that our graduates are successful in meeting the employment requirements of these industries. VCAD maintains close ties with the fashion, graphic design, and video gaming industries to continually assess our curriculum and gain insight about industry needs.
