Saturday Pre-College (Fall/Spring)-School of Art - Carnegie Mellon University

Saturday Pre-College (Fall/Spring)

The Saturday Program is run by the School of Art, and is open to Pittsburgh regional high school students from 9th-12th grade. Classes meet on CMU's campus Saturday mornings between 9:30am-12:30pm.

Saturday Pre-College Art classes span drawing, painting, sculpture, animation, print media, digital photography, figure drawing, and more. These foundational courses are recommended to any student planning on studying fine art at the collegiate level.

Nude Models: The pre-college curriculum is meant to very closely mirror the first-year undergraduate program of study in Carnegie Mellon’s School of art. Our course work often requires that students work from nude models in classes such as drawing, painting, and sculpture. We expect all students to be respectful of one another, their instructors, and the models themselves in these instances. If a student is unable to participate in class because of nude models, it is their responsibility to approach the instructor ahead of time and receive an alternative assignment.
