The PCAE Exhibit is Now Open!

Academy of Art University is proud of all the students who completed their PCAE pre-college program with fantastic artworks to show for!

Congratulations to all the participants to this year’s Pre-College Art Experience (PCAE) Spring semester. It was a fun learning experience, wasn’t it? But the truth is it really wouldn’t have been as fun without all of you.

So a huge Thank You goes out to all those who heeded our call for submissions to this exhibit. Academy of Art University’s PCAE program is ongoing all year-round (yes, even with social distancing), so don’t worry if you missed out on this semester. We’re moving online too in the meantime, but rest assured the programs are open to accommodate those who would like to use this time to develop and refine their art. Sign up now for our Summer and Fall semesters!

How to Join PCAE

The PCAE program is offered to all high school students who are curious about and interested in experiencing life in an art college. You’ll have to buy your own supply, but otherwise, the course is TUITION-FREE. You may also earn money credits that you can then apply later on for your tuitioN once you go to Academy of Art for your art and design degree.

Check out the official PCAE page on academyart.edu for more details and student work.
