A life in the arts begins long before college, but here you will prepare for what’s next. Be prepared for a full body (and brain) immersion into art and design. We’ll help you develop your voice, hone your instincts and explore your interests. When you’re ready to graduate, you’ll be amazed at how far you’ve come.
