Culinary Arts

Our culinary students come to us from different levels of experience but they all share the same thing — a passion for cooking. And they know something else: There are no shortcuts to a great culinary education. It’s why they are here.

At The Art Institutes, our students study traditional, fundamental cooking skills. And they explore the realities of working in restaurants and the food service industry. Watch the professionals at work as you pass by the kitchen of your favorite restaurant. It’s orchestrated chaos and hard work. It’s opportunity in a thriving industry, just waiting for your vision of the next great meal. Discover your culinary vision at The Art Institutes.


Do you have that discerning eye that notices type treatments on commercials, or perhaps become envious over a great-looking chair? In design, you will create the interesting visuals that have an impact in our everyday lives. Get prepared to study programs such as graphic design, industrial design or interior design at The Art Institutes. Launch your creative career with The Art Institutes advantage.


Fashion designers, marketers, and merchandisers are the creators of everyday art as we wrap ourselves in their vision. Remember that the fashion industry is more than creativity and passion — it’s also extremely competitive. That’s why our Fashion Design and Fashion Marketing programs at The Art Institutes focus on the creative and business aspects of this fast-paced industry.

Take your first steps with The Art Institutes. You'll get hands-on training from industry professionals and the career support you need to land your career. What will your impact be in fashion? Where will your designs, inspiration, and business acumen take you? Take your first steps with The Art Institutes.


Are you a natural storyteller? As a media professional, it’s up to you to think big about all of the amazing technology at your fingertips without losing sight of what makes a good story in the first place. Many of our programs in Media Arts have a strong design and drawing component in their curriculum — hey, if you don’t know how the human body moves, how are you going to animate it? 

At the Art Institutes, we train you, hands-on, with the software that you need to understand the blend of technology and media. You'll be prepared to launch your career in broadcasting, photography, digital media production, visual effects and more at The Arts Institutes.
