At CCA’s Pre-College Program, you’ll join a diverse group of creative thinkers and makers who share your passion for art and design. The program is open to all interested participants, those with little art and design experience and those with advanced skills. Summer 2022 marks the first time that CCA’s Pre-College program will be scheduled exclusively in San Francisco!
