Are you a high school student looking for a way to build a killer portfolio that will get you into a great art college – with a scholarship?


The High School to Art School program (HS2AS) is an annually, fully-subsidized portfolio development program that provides qualified high school juniors and seniors with the art skills training, mentorship, essay writing techniques, college application assistance and financial aid planning necessary to gain acceptance into competitive art colleges.

HS2AS sessions are scheduled in the spring, summer, and fall and take place at QCA headquarters located in the Kaufman Arts District in Astoria.


We are now accepting applications for our Summer Session.

Please note that in the Spring and Summer sessions, priority will be given to juniors, and then sophomores.
