“I have found myself learning a lot not only about art but the idea of it. I’ve learned that the idea behind art can be just as important as the art piece itself. This has opened my eyes and led me to look at art pieces in a different light. The program not only helps me become a better artist but let’s me explore art intellectually, through a lot of writing and thinking.” – Sobel Pizarro, junior student
QCA’s High School to Art School Portfolio Development Program (HS2AS) provides high school juniors and seniors with high quality arts skills training including portfolio development, college application assistance, and financial aid planning for college. We prepare our students to compete for admission to distinguished art programs in colleges, universities, and art schools through portfolio preparation and the college/art school application process. HS2AS enjoys a high success rate of undergraduate admissions and scholarship assistance for its participating students. 100% of the 2014 graduating class gained admission to the top 20 national universities. HS2AS students have been accepted to The Cooper Union, Pratt, Parsons, New York University, Fashion Institute of Technology, CUNY-Hunter College, SUNY-Purchase, RISD, and more.
HS2AS is made possible with generous support from New York State Council on the Arts, NYC Department of Cultural Affairs, Altman Foundation, Aviation Development Council, Milton and Sally Avery Arts Foundation, Con Edison, New York Community Bank Foundation, New York Community Trust, Pinkerton Foundation, Surdna Foundation, and TD Charitable Foundation.
