The Queens Council on the Arts (QCA) is calling on high school seniors to apply for their High School to Art School (HS2AS) program this fall.

The program seeks to help high school students prepare for a future at art school. During the fall session, which is geared towards high school seniors, students will receive assistance with college applications, portfolio preparation and art skills training.

Students will also take field trips to museums and galleries throughout New York City and will meet with representatives from art schools all over the country to get one-on-one portfolio reviews.

The fall session will take place from Oct. 11 through Feb. 9. During the session students will meet on Thursdays from 4 to 7 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the QCA headquarters in Astoria.

Alumni from the HS2AS program have gone on to attend Boston University, FIT, Pratt Institute, Parsons School of Design and more.

Applications can be submitted by prospective students online and will be accepted until Sept. 15. For more information, visit queenscouncilarts.org.
