Choose Your Program. Change the World.
The Pre-College Art and Design program motivates, stimulates and prepares you as emerging artists and designers. Exploring traditional tools and new technologies in a variety of media leads you to develop conceptual and technical skills as well as your portfolio – all excellent preparation for applying to and succeeding in college-level art and design programs. Challenging courses, stimulating workshops, museum and gallery field trips, and energetic interaction with dedicated faculty and talented peers introduce you to the spirit and substance of an art and design school culture and environment.
