Congratulations to all of our amazing Precollege alumni who got accepted to FIT for fall 2019!!! Whether you took one or six classes with us, we are so proud of you! Some of the majors featured here are: Photography and Related Media, Advertising and Marketing Communications, Fashion Design and Fashion Business Management.
Special shoutout to Faith who did an amazing job blogging about her Precollege Styling class at the Fashion Institute of Technology back in 2016.
The painter Chuck Close is quoted as saying “Inspiration is for amateurs—the rest of us just show up and get to work.” To be a professional artist takes skill and studio discipline. Workshops and courses taught by artists will help you develop the studio practice you need to be a full-time artist.
11-session Precollege Courses
We recommend a high school Precollege Live Class:
Basic Life Drawing – learn how to draw the figure from a live model.
Design Composition and Color Theory – explore design principles and color mixing in a studio art environment.
Fine Arts Portfolio – get your portfolio ready with an assessment from a college professor and create any pieces missing for a dynamic application.
Fashion designers from all over the world get their start at FIT. Many come back to learn even more skills, to stay on the cutting edge of fashion design and development. FIT has concentrations in menswear or womenswear.
Whether you’ve been creating your own fashions since you were a tiny tot or just decided yesterday you were meant to be a designer, Precollege can get you set up with the skills you need to start or improve!
On Saturday, April 13th, spend the afternoon with fashion designer, Christopher Uvenio. Christopher will go over his journey from fashion school to working for design houses such as Todd Olham and Anna Sui.
Interior Design is one of the most popular majors at FIT. Interior designers create worlds inside walls with their creative layouts, material and lighting choices. But don’t confuse design with decorating. Interior Design is essentially interior architecture and is in the field of technical design.
Model Building- make a basic architectural model, either as a hobby or as the 3-D model building component required for many admissions portfolios.
Exploring Interior Design– delve into the interior design industry, learning how to create aesthetic environments. Develop client boards and take trips to showrooms to immerse yourself in the world of a New York interior designer. Summer SessionFall SessionSpring Session
