A future is created

Creation makes a beautiful future. Aiming to bringing up students who will be pragmatic technicians in local communities, the Akita Municipal Junior College of Art and Craft is a unique art college owned and managed by the city government. Also, having a facility named "Atelier Momosada," this college opens the door to local residents and provides life-long education programs, such as textiles, glasswork, and metal engraving courses.

The city has encouraged an education that aims at development of individual talent rather than learning by route. The unique experiment, in which we have combined school education with human resources and facilities in their local communities, has been watched with keen interest.
