The Outreach Pre-college Program
Free art classes for NYC high school students
Since its creation in 1992, The The Outreach Pre-College Art Program supports New York City area high school students interested in pursuing a degree in art. The program helps students develop a portfolio worthy of art college admissions and scholarships. Professional artists teach all courses, and Cooper Union undergraduates serve as teaching assistants. Classes are free, including materials, field trip transportation and museum admissions. Our classes are small,16-18 students per section to ensure optimal learning.
New York City area high school students, grades 10-12, are eligible to apply. 5 to 8-week courses take place in the fall, winter, and spring. Classes take place on Saturdays from 9am-5pm.
All students take drawing classes, with additional workshops in printmaking, photography, 3D design and 2D design. A seminar on contemporary art issues encourages students to think critically, discuss and write about current issues. This seminar includes guest speakers and visits to art venues in New York City.
To apply students must register online and attend a portfolio review held in The Cooper Union campus.
Students who would like to apply for a merit scholarship to attend the Summer Art Intensive must register online here and attend a portfolio review will be on Saturday April 22, 10am-2pm, 41 Cooper Square, room 101.
