Ashcan Summer Classes- your options- 11th grade and up!

College Portfolio Preparation Intensive

Grade 11-Up

Fine Art & Design / Digital Art

Our Summer Intensive Program is designed for all Ashcan students who wish to apply to colleges the following Fall/Winter (for admittance in the Fall of the following year). During the school year, high school and college students rightly must focus most of their time on their school work and so have limited time to dedicate to their portfolio.

The Summer Intensive allows students to give their portfolio the necessary time and attention to develop to its highest quality. In addition, the summer at Ashcan is a focused, nurturing, and ambitious community of art students whose success influences one another. The daily art practice in a summer dedicated to the portfolio has been a huge element in the outstanding achievements of Ashcan’s students, allowing their portfolios to stand out so well to college recruiters.
