Pre-college programs are designed for high school students interested in developing their artistic, interpersonal, and critical thinking skills through a wide range of classes and courses. Participants will learn with other creative students under the guidance of our acclaimed faculty at the oldest Art Academy in the United States.
Our classes help to develop strong traditional fine art making skills in combination with contemporary practices, enabling students to experiment and find their own personal voice. All students enjoy museum access, including the ability to study directly from artworks in the museum galleries. College credit and college admissions portfolio building are available for the majority of the classes.
PAFA offers programs for artists and art lovers of all ages and skill levels who want to learn about and make art.
