CCA Extension

Last updated on Nov 14, 2022

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

California College of the Arts offers a range of year-round, noncredit courses for professional, intellectual, and creative development for adults 18 years and older through the CCA Extension program. All in person classes are now offered exclusively at our San Francisco campus, and our online courses are synchronous, meaning they meet live during a specific time of day, Pacific Standard Time, on the video conferencing platform Zoom. Current high school students are welcome to enroll in weekend intensive portfolio-building workshops through the CCA Atelier program.
