Maine College of Art is a gem. Located in the heart of the thriving Portland Arts District, MECA offers an intimate arts education in one of America's most spectacular small cities. Each of our 350 students are mentored individually by our dedicated faculty to pursue their personal and professional goals. Our main facility, the five-floor Porteous Building, is a former department store. Through an adaptive re-use, we have transformed this historic building into a vertical campus with stunning studio facilities and administrative services all under one roof and open 24/7. Our three residence halls, also renovated historic buildings, are located within a block of campus.
