A reputation for success

Established in 1995, LCAD is a government-approved, independent tertiary institution. This year marks our 26th year of delivering exceptional education and we remain energised by the challenges and opportunities presented in a post-Covid environment. Our reputation of success in the arts continues to be evidenced by the award-winning and highly recognised work of our graduates and their ongoing efforts to shape the fabric of our cultural landscape.

A contemporary approach

LCAD specialises in small class sizes and individual tutorial based learning. Students have the opportunity not only to develop specific skills but to experiment with different art-making modes and to refine their creative oeuvre and desired pathway. Our courses are a contemporary balance of skills-based training with applied creative direction.

Industry connected

LCAD courses are designed to maximise your connection to industry. We have strong connections with leading organisations, presenting galleries and partner institutions in order to provide our students with access to mentors and professionals at the vanguard of art and commerce. By studying at LCAD you will gain the knowledge, skills and confidence required to kick start your career or further your professional development.

Learnings that last a lifetime

LCAD strives to support students of any age and experience level. Students can choose from Diploma courses or Advanced Diploma courses as well as a variety of single subjects. This allows for customised learning in the areas that most appeal to a student’s interests and goals. The consistent success of our students over the past 26 years is evidenced by their ongoing commitment to exhibiting, working in leading design agencies, starting their own businesses and/or pursuing creative opportunities abroad.

Studio based facilities

LCAD is situated in a studio warehouse in the arts precinct of Collingwood. Only 2.5kms from the city centre of Melbourne, Collingwood is known for its galleries, art spaces, restaurants and community lifestyles. This diverse multicultural community makes the district a unique part of contemporary life in Australia. All of our facilities are equipped with state of the art technology and materials. Students undertaking our Advanced Diploma of Visual Arts program are provided with individual studio spaces to work in for the duration of their studies.
