Roll up your sleeves and flex your art muscles for Foundations and Drawing. Foundations is a rigorous course that combines the vocabulary of the visual arts with the most essential art-making tools.

Foundations will introduce you to art as a profession, as a form of visual thinking, and as a creative process. Using diverse media and technical processes (drawing, painting, sculpture, and installation), you will explore new and uncharted territories to create artwork. Come prepared to experiment and have fun, while exploring the infinite processes available to you in the world of art and design. Foundations is designed to be an exciting creative experience for each student, that works in combination with two focused intensive electives. Students who register for the Pre-College Course Package for Art & Design, which includes Portfolio Development, will then need to choose and register separately for two afternoon elective courses, which rotate Monday/Wednesday and Tuesday/Thursday. Elective courses include topics such as photography, printmaking, sculpture, painting, graphic design and digital media. Students can choose to delve deeper into an area of interest, explore something new, or both! For more information, see the Art & Design Summer at Cornish programs.

Once you have enrolled in the Foundations program, please register for 2 of the following intensive electives to complete the Pre-College Foundation program. Portfolio Development is included when registering for this program.
