"It might have happened in eighth grade, or maybe it was fourth grade, or it could have been the day when you got your first box of crayons and first pair of blunt scissors: but years ago, you recognized what separates you from others. You see art, where others see only function. You see process, where others see only finished products. Yours is the perception of an artist or designer. You race to keep up with your ideas and reach for all the possibilities for exploration and learning."
- Ellen L. Meyer, President, The Atlanta College of Art

Founded in 1928 and situated in the heart of Atlanta, The Atlanta College of Art is the oldest college of art and design in the South. As the only art and design college in the nation to share a campus with three cultural organizations - the High Museum of Art, the Alliance Theatre and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, ACA is alive with the beauty and energy of the performing arts.

The Atlanta College of Art provides educational opportunities for career-minded students with a talent and passion for making art. Accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design and by the Commission of Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, the College offers a diverse course of study leading to the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.

Its excellence has been recognized by the Coca-Cola Foundation, which supports the College's endeavors by funding scholarships to deserving students. Scholarships are awarded to the students based on both merit and need. We appreciate the opportunity to enhance our Partners publication by featuring the work of some of the Coca-Cola Scholars.
