When Philip J. Steele founded Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design in 1963, his dream was to provide students with an education based on traditional art and design principles in an environment that fostered personal meaning and growth.
From years of working as an artist and teacher, he understood that in order to provide a quality education it was essential that students have the opportunity to study with professional artists and designers who could both teach the courses and guide students as they sought to push the boundaries of creativity and innovation.
RMCAD is located on twenty-three wooded acres at the foot of the Rocky Mountains in Lakewood, Colorado, in the west-central part of metropolitan Denver.
