The Art Institute of California-Inland Empire is opening its doors to local residents interested in a college degree or a career in the creative arts.

Monica Jeffs, senior director of admissions, said the open house will be held from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. Saturday, April 26 at The Art Institute of California-Inland Empire campus located at 630 E. Brier Dr., San Bernardino.

Councilman Rikke Van Johnson looks at one of the many Art Institute displays.

 "Guests will learn why we are America's leader in creative education," Jeffs said.

" We are presenting information about all of the majors we offer such as our new fashion and retail management program, as well as game arts and design, culinary arts, interior design, graphic design, web design and interactive media, and media arts and animation. We hope many of our guests will want to apply for our next term, which begins May 8 with day, evening and weekend courses."

The open house will also serve as an introduction to Summer Studio, a program The Art Institute of California-Inland Empire offers during summer for high school students starting their junior or senior year in the fall.

In this program, students work with a non-profit organization selected by The Art Institute of California-Inland Empire. They help the organization with design needs, thus experiencing what it would be like to work in a particular design field.

Also at the open house, there will be hands-on workshops in all of the programs, and a more extensive introduction to the new Fashion & Retail Management program.

The open house is also an opportunity to meet The Art Institute's faculty, many of whom are also working in the industry, Jeffs said. These include Robert Delgadillo, who instructs both graphic design and fashion courses at The Art Institute, and also designs ads that have appeared in magazines like In Style and Vogue.

Jeffs said members of the public can tour the facility and meet with representatives from the university's academic, student life and financial aid departments.

"Get the facts on how financial aid works, how you qualify and what you could be eligible for," she said. "You may be surprised at how much is available for students with the desire to succeed."
