2024 IN-PERSON PRE-COLLEGE SUMMER STUDIO IMMERSION PROGRAM

GROW YOUR POTENTIAL: DCAD’s Pre-College Summer Immersion Program is designed for high school students who are interested in pursuing an art and design education at the college level. During this one-week program, you will have the opportunity to learn what it’s like to study art in higher education, further your creative practice, and discover some of the many career options you can pursue. To help you deepen your studio practice and hone your career interests, DCAD is offering two one-week in-person commuter Summer Studio Immersion programs.

REALIZE YOUR POTENTIAL: Each major is led by one of DCAD’s experienced professors, who are all practicing professional artists and designers. Expect to be challenged throughout the week while creating portfolio-building work. Small classes enable you to work closely with professors and your peers, gain valuable experience in critiques and flourish in the inspiring environment that is DCAD.

EXPERIENCE COLLEGE LIFE: For 2024, all participating students will attend classes from 9 AM – 4:30 PM each day. Current DCAD second-year students and alumni will serve as Teaching Assistants for the week offering valuable support and insights on what it’s like to attend an art and design college.

PREPARE YOUR COLLEGE PORTFOLIO: Planning on applying to art school after high school? If so, then DCAD’s Summer Pre-College Studio Immersion Program is the ideal opportunity to work on your application portfolio, demonstrate your passion for art, and get one-on-one feedback from our professors.
