Overview

The Pre-College Art program at Carnegie Mellon motivates, stimulates and prepares emerging artists and creative problem solvers.

Exploring traditional tools and new technologies in a variety of media leads to the development of conceptual and technical skills–excellent preparation for applying to and succeeding in a competitive college-level art program. Students will be introduced to the spirit and substance of the CMU School of Art culture through challenging courses, critique, stimulating workshops, portfolio development, and energetic interaction with dedicated faculty and talented peers. During the summer Pre-College Art Program students attend morning and afternoon classes, Monday through Thursday. They work in our beautiful, spacious studios in the historic College of Fine Arts building and the School of Art’s Doherty Hall fabrication facilities. In addition to structured class time, they’ll participate in elective workshops on Fridays, open studios and portfolio reviews.

The Pre-College Art faculty is comprised of accomplished artists with experience teaching teenagers as well as in undergraduate and graduate level environments. Small class sizes allow students to benefit from individual attention, intense instruction and substantial constructive feedback. Undergraduate teaching assistants provide support for both instructors and students and add valuable insight into the School of Art’s BFA program.
