The Outreach Pre-college Program accepts high school students who live in New York City and surrounding areas, in grades 10-12, and who are enrolled in either a public or private high school. Each season is designed for specific grade levels to assist in the college application process.
All applicants must fill out a registration form online AND then attend an in-person portfolio review to apply to the program. If a student is unable to come the day of the review, individual appointments are available by writing firstname.lastname@example.org. All students are given individual portfolio critiques by Outreach staff of professional artists and guest alumni.
When and where:
Each season has a separate application, review date, and courses offered. Please see dates above. Portfolio reviews take place at 41 Cooper Square, 1st floor (East 7th St. and Third Ave.). The reviews run from 10am – 2pm.
What to bring:
Your portfolio should include 10-20 original artworks, as well as sketchbooks. Bring samples of your artwork that best represents your abilities, motivation, and interests. Include drawings from observation—those made from looking at an actual object, place or situation. We recommend you bring your actual work not its representation on a display device. Please also bring your sketchbook!
Students are contacted by email and telephone the week after the review regarding admission.
Please call 212-353-4202 with any questions, or write to email@example.com.
