    MCAD’s Pre-College Summer Session is a highly structured and challenging classroom and studio-based experience developed to guide serious art students in the process of maturing as artists and individuals. 

    This two-week, three-credit, program is geared toward committed art and design students who are currently in their sophomore, junior, or senior years of high school. Students are able to choose their own major amongst five: animation, comic art, graphic design, illustration, or painting.

    Students spend full days under the guidance of professional instructors, immersed in both foundational and intensive major classes. Evenings and weekends provide a chance to build new friendships, explore Minneapolis, and spend dedicated time working in the studios and labs.

    Scholarships available. To find out more about session dates, costs, and how to sign up, check out our website!
