Our degree programs in the areas of Design, Media Arts, Fashion, and Culinary help you focus your talents and explore what you’re passionate about. In our collaborative environment, our instructors will guide and mentor you as we help you build the skills you need to start your creative career.
There’s nothing like seeing our creative community for yourself. Meet our faculty, learn more about the technology you’ll use, and get acquainted with our support staff, including Career Services. You can either attend Open House or arrange for a personal tour.
We’re here to guide you step-by-step through the process.
We realize you have questions (that’s good) because your education is a major investment. We’ll talk about your interests, and what program is a good fit for you. And our Financial Aid staff can help you review your options, including merit- and need-based scholarships, and will help you navigate the process. Contact us to get moving on your tomorrow.

Our facility also includes Ology Restaurant, the student-run restaurant of The International Culinary School at The Art Institute of Austin. Ology has a five-course prix-fix menu that changes quarterly. Diners are treated to local and international cuisine—everything from a taste of Asia to meals inspired by the Lone Star state.
The restaurant also offers burgers, veggie burgers, chicken sandwiches, soup, and salads.
Ology is run under the supervision of Chef Instructor Brad Harmon and manager John Walker. Students prepare the meals and run the front-end of the restaurant, from taking reservations to seating and serving diners.
Ology is an opportunity for culinary students to demonstrate their skills in a real-world environment—and for diners to experience delicious meals showcasing the students' talents.
