High school students from throughout Delaware and beyond who are serious about preparing for college admission in an art or design field will benefit from the one-week intensive studio experience offered by the Delaware College of Art and Design’s 2017 Pre-College program.
Rising high school juniors and seniors will spend DCAD Pre-College Studio Week taking one drawing course and one elective course in animation, graphic design, illustration, interior design, painting or photography. All classes are taught by DCAD faculty members who, as practicing professional artists and designers themselves, are dedicated to helping students gain artistic confidence and produce work worthy of their college application portfolios.
Pre-College enrollees will complete challenging assignments aimed at helping them stretch themselves as art and design students. Participants also will experience dorm living and campus life and curate the work they produce for a week-ending exhibition in DCAD’s Toni & Stuart B. Young Gallery.
Cost includes lunch and optional field trips and totals $650 for a day student or $950 for a residential student. Enrollees who would like to earn one college credit for the week will pay an additional $300 as a day student or an additional $275 as a residential student.
