Early College Program

Ideas Matter Here — with us you have the freedom to explore across all media. ECP Faculty — professional and practicing artists, designers, and scholars who are passionate about teaching. Access to our Art Institute of Chicago Museum — the world’s third largest art museum, recently voted the best museum in the world by TripAdvisor. Preparation — the skills you learn will help you in the classroom and assist you in preparing a portfolio of work should you be interested in pursuing art and design at the college level.

Our Early College Program (ECP) students are taught to think and make across multiple media. You begin with an idea and are able to execute your vision with the help of faculty guidance and state-of-the art facilities such as 3D printing, laser cutters, and generous studios. You will also learn creative problem solving and entrepreneurial skills to prepare you for college and beyond!
