So many students have been asking about opportunities, classes, pre-college programs. We are so lucky to have so many great opportunities in our area. Many colleges and universities in the New York and Philadelphia area offer Saturday classes for high school students. Schools like Fashion Institute of Technology, Moore, University of the Arts Philadelphia are some that offer pre-college classes. The classes can range from drawing to photography to even jewelry. Depending on the program they can last from 10-12 weeks. Taking these types of courses can allow you to experience that college or university first hand. This is great especially if you are interested in the school. If you are not ready for something like that there are a few local programs. Ducret School of the Arts in Plainfield offers classes for high school students in a wide range of topics. There is also the New Jersey Center for the Visual Arts in Summit. As with any program, everyone's experience is different. I suggest you check them out and do the research. Information for programs can also be found in my classroom near my desk in the College & Art School Info display on the wall. Feel free to check out any materials in there.
