The SA+AH is hosting a 7 week, Pre-College and Continuing Education program to be held in our facilities during the Spring 2019 semester.

High school students (ages 15+) and adults of all skill levels are welcome!

The Pre-College and Continuing Education program is designed to give members of the Gainesville community the opportunity to experience the University of Florida curriculum through in-depth, college-level studio concentrations: Darkroom Photography, Painting + Drawing, and Life Drawing.

Classes run on Saturdays (Jan. 12, Jan. 19, Jan. 26, Feb. 2, Feb. 9, Feb. 16, and Feb. 23 ), 9AM - 12PM.

The classes are held at our campus facilities in the Fine Arts Building Complex.

This is a great headstart for serious and talented High school students looking to begin building a portfolio. This is also a great way for adults who are continuing their education, to enhance their professional development in the arts.

The SA+AH Pre-College & Continuing Education Program will guide students in the curation of a professional portfolio.

This program offers a chance for artists to grow their portfolios and expand their body of work, make new connections in the community, and experience the best of the University of Florida campus life during the Spring. Get ready to discover, create, follow your passion, and make contributions to our visual world!
