A FREE Program for High School Students at NUMU
Thursday, September 12  |  6-7pm  |  RSVP Required

Applying to Art School can be confusing and overwhelming. But don't despair! We're here to help. Admissions Counselors from California College (CCA) of the Arts will be onsite at NUMU to share important information on how to analyze art school curriculums, and understand the ins and outs of the application process and portfolio development.

You will also learn about career opportunities in the arts, and how to apply for scholarships and financial aid. And please bring your parents! They will also benefit from the information, guidance and resources generously shared by the pros at CCA.
