CCA Extension

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, CCA Extension will not be holding any in-person classes for summer and fall 2020, winter and likely spring 2021. 

We are looking at the possibility of scheduling some online courses, for adults, for high school students, sometime during the upcoming academic year. If you are interested in being notified of any online offerings, please add your name to the notification list here. Thank you.

Embrace your inner artist. Develop creative skills. Explore the traditional and the unexpected.

California College of the Arts offers a wide range of year-round, noncredit extension courses for professional, intellectual, and creative development for adults that are 18 years and older

Courses are offered on the San Francisco and Oakland campuses in the evenings or weekends. They range from fine art such as painting/drawing, jewelry design, and ceramics to software and design-based classes including Photoshop, Illustrator, and intro to interior design.
