Since 2006, Anchor Graphics has been partnered with Columbia College Chicago as part of the Art + Design Department. This partnership serves both the school and Anchor Graphics by providing classes, academic internship opportunities, collaborative projects, and a platform for visiting artists and lecturers from across the country.
