The High School to Art School program (HS2AS) is a FREE visual arts portfolio development program that provides qualified high school sophomores, juniors and seniors with the art skills training, mentorship, essay writing techniques, college application assistance and financial aid planning necessary to gain acceptance into competitive art colleges.
HS2AS offers Spring, Fall, and Summer Sessions every year. Students can attend one session or multiple sessions. Sessions are designed so juniors can start in the Spring, and continue into the Summer and/or Fall Sessions.
THE INTENSIVE ARTMAKING PROGRAM
Overview: The Summer “Intensive” Session is a great opportunity for students to dive into a month and half of art-making in an immersive setting that enables students to explore observational drawing in graphite, charcoal, and ink, as well as a variety of other media including painting, collage-making, and printmaking.
Free program: If admitted, all students attend the program on a full scholarship. Art supplies, metrocards, field trip admission fees, and snacks are all provided.
