The Chicago Industrial Arts & Design Center offers classes, workshops, and studio access year-round on the quarter system.

There is a 1-week Class Make-Up Week at the end of each Class term for CIADC cancelled class sessions due to instructor illness/schedule, bad weather, etc. Please note: the Class Make-Up Week is not for individual student make-ups, only used when necessary for the entire class.
