Jefferson County Public Schools
RMCAD regularly hosts teachers from Jefferson County Public Schools District for professional development lectures and workshops. Faculty from JeffCo visit campus for a day to learn and discuss new teaching methodologies and art practicers to incorporate into their own classrooms.
National Portfolio Day Association
Every year RMCAD hosts National Portfolio Day (NPD) on its campus. At this event, students have the opportunity to meet with representatives from a variety of NASAD (National Association of Schools of Art and Design) accredited colleges to discuss and review artwork in preparation for college admission.
RedLine Reach Studio
RMCAD is honored to have three members of RedLine’s Reach Studio as members of its student body. These outstanding students have been awarded full scholarships. Reach Studio is a free, open, and supportive arts space where artists in Denver’s “not exactly” homeless and in-transition community can come to express themselves creatively, be exposed to new art forms, collaborate with peers, learn new skills and challenge each other to take the next step in their art and in their lives. Reach artists have access to instructive and non-instructive class time, resident/community artist mentors, a professional space to display and sell their work, drop-in studio hours, and a yearly Reach Studio Exhibition.
