Take an art class

Children's art classes

Saturday Morning Art Classes are available for students in grades 1-12 and adults and range throughout all media and skill levels, providing a high level of creative thinking for young ages.

Creative Summer Workshops are weeklong hands-on courses at CCAD for students in grades 1-12, offering opportunities for students interested in art to develop their skills in a creative and mentoring environment. Younger grades explore the hues and values of color, storytelling and modeling, botanical art, paper toys, printmaking and more. Students in grades 5-8 discover the foundations of drawing, painting, digital media, mini comics and flipbook animation. Students in grades 7-9 look deeper into animation, digital photography, fashion design, expressive drawing, ceramics and stop-motion animation.

CCAD Film & Video Camp is a three-week filmmaking workshop for students ages 13–18 that explores everything from pre-production and set design to filming and post-production work.


Teen and college art classes

CCAD College Preview is a three-week residential program designed for current high school students or recent graduates considering a future in the visual arts. This program allows students to take classes with our faculty, meet professional artists, learn traditional studio practices and exhibit their work — just like a full-time student at CCAD. They'll live in our residence halls, attend events on campus and explore the rich Columbus art scene. And they'll walk away with three real college credits and a newfound edge when applying to art and design schools.


Adult art classes

Adult Learning Opportunities include a wide range of programming to the community, including the option of taking courses from our undergraduate programs. If you're not looking to earn a degree, you don't have to be admitted to CCAD to audit or receive credit for these courses.
