Cooper Union School of Art

Saturday program: The Saturday Program offers seven free studio art classes enrolling over 200 New York City Public High School students. Classes meet Saturdays from 10am-5pm, for two semesters each school year (October through April). This schedule provides the intensive working time necessary to rigorously explore media, technique and concept. Students do not need prior experience, only motivation and a written application required. To encourage access for all, materials are provided at no charge.
The Outreach program: The Outreach Pre-college Program accepts high school students who live in New York City and surrounding areas, in grades 10-12, and who are enrolled in either a public or private high school. Each season is designed for specific grade levels to assist the college application process.
