Why CCS Precollege? The College for Creative Studies’ art and design programs motivate, stimulate and guide emerging artists and designers ages 13 – 19 toward their creative future.

Programs and courses are designed to give you the chance to experience a college-level classroom, where your challenge is to learn the skills being taught and apply them to creatively solve visual problems.

Middle and high school students who want to learn art and design principles through exciting project-based courses can explore a variety of creative disciplines, use new technologies, learn in CCS’s world-class facilities, and from CCS faculty. Many students find our courses helpful in creating a high-quality portfolio of work that they can use for application to an art and design college like CCS.

Whether you prefer to study during the school year or over the summer, CCS has courses that are sure to fit your needs and schedule. We offer several workshops, short courses and credit-bearing classes in all of the College’s art and design majors. Classes are offered throughout the year and meet evenings and weekends at the A. Alfred Taubman Center for Design Education or on the Walter and Josephine Ford Campus.

High school students age 16 or older may also enroll in most of the 10-week adult courses listed in the previous section.
