CCA Extension

Last updated on May 04, 2023

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 offered at our San Francisco campus, and online courses are synchronous, meaning they meet live during a specific time of day, Pacific Time, on the video platform Zoom.

CCA Extension offers a 25% discount for employees of educational institutions, including middle and high school teachers, higher education professionals, and community-based or non-profit arts organizations. Contact for the online registration discount code.

Age: All students must be 18 years or older to enroll in CCA Extension courses. CCA Youth Programs offers CCA Atelier weekend intensive workshops for high school aged students in the fall and spring. In the summer, we offer a Young Artist Studio Program for middle school aged students, Summer Atelier for rising sophomores and juniors, and a Pre-College Program for 10th, 11th and 12th graders.

Covid-19 Vaccine Requirements: All CCA Extension students enrolled in on-campus classes (with the exception of those who receive an approved exemption) must be fully vaccinated and receive a booster against COVID-19 by the start of their first in-person class. Please note that Extension students do not upload information to Workday. Information will be collected from Extension students prior to their first class.
