Dates and Registration

Summer 2021 Online Scholarship Portfolio: June 5 – August 21 (No class July 3)

REGISTRATION DEADLINE IS ONE WEEK BEFORE START OF CLASS

Any class cancelled due to weather, instructor illness or other circumstance will be rescheduled one to two weeks after the conclusion of the class. There is no prorating of tuition if the student cannot attend the make up session.

How Do I Choose the Right Class?

“I want to go to art college, but will I be ready?” A common question, and an increasing concern when students have fewer options at their school to develop the necessary skill sets.
MIAD’s Pre-College classes offer a clear path to get prepared for college. We recommend the following incremental approach to develop the skills and confidence you will need:

• Drawing for the Portfolio: Grades 9 – 12
• Figure Drawing: Grades 9 – 12
• Scholarship Portfolio: Grade 12 (Fall Semester)

It is extremely important, no matter what discipline you are interested in, to have strong observational and figure drawing in your portfolio when you apply for college. Consider the three classes above as your “foundation” classes.

If you have time to explore beyond these, we encourage you to elect a class from the Adult/Teen section, where you can find painting, photography, illustration, graphic design classes and more. These classes are for ages 16 and up.

Summer Online Scholarship Portfolio – Registration Closed

PC100: Online Scholarship Portfolio (Grade 12) – Registration has closed for the summer session. Fall dates will be posted soon.
Online Scholarship Portfolio is an opportunity for high school seniors to strengthen their portfolios for submission to college. Various project prompts are strategically developed to provide the keys to a successful portfolio through ample opportunity for experimentation, discovery and diversifying and adding to existing skills through individual interests. Discussions, presentations and individual feedback augment student growth. Students who successfully complete the course receive a $2,500 scholarship, renewable up to four years (totaling $10,000), to attend MIAD in Fall 2022. This is in addition to any other merit or need-based monies awarded. Attendance is required each week, along with project completion, in order to receive the scholarship offer. 

Note: while some supplies may be recommended, students are responsible for providing their own materials based on their specific goals and interests.

COVID-19 Information

The health and safety of the MIAD community, including all guests on campus, will continue to drive our decisions as we navigate and remain flexible during the COVID-19 pandemic. As such, we are taking the following precautions for the Spring Pre-College and Continuing Education program.

For in-person courses at MIAD:

  • Class sizes will be restricted to allow for physical distancing.
  • Face masks are required.  Students are required to provide their own face mask.
  • Sanitization products and instructions for properly sanitizing work spaces will be provided in the classrooms.
  • Students will be expected to properly clean their work areas before and after use each class.
  • Students are expected to follow MIAD protocols for navigating the building (one-way stairwells, limits to number of persons in the elevators, etc.).
  • Students should self-monitor for signs of COVID-19, and we ask that students stay home if they are feeling ill.
  • If the instructor or anyone in a class tests positive for COVID-19 during the course, or if the campus is placed on extended lockdown due to the virus, students will be notified and the class will be cancelled. Reimbursements will be issued for the remaining classes.  As a six week course, there is not an opportunity to resume classes after a quarantine period.

For Online courses:

    • Minimum technical requirements to ensure a successful experience will be posted on the supply lists.
    • Courses will be taught synchronously. Therefore students will need to attend during the scheduled time as if the course were at MIAD.
