#YOURBASICS is a free intensive art school prep course designed for Atlanta Public High School students interested in pursuing a college education in the arts. Led by a pool of distinguished local arts professionals and national art school representatives, the course will provide students with the knowledge, skills, tools, and resources needed to put together strong college applications. Over the course, participants will learn about the art school admission process, enhance their writing and communication skills, learn how to document artwork and assemble a strong portfolio, and participate in a series of field trips to local arts institutions. 

Students must commit to participate in the entire series, as skills learned earlier will be built upon in later sessions. The majority of sessions will be held off campus at relevant sites after school. Transportation will not be provided.

Students at the junior and senior level are welcome to apply.
