Graffiti HeArt will be working with CIA to provide Pre-College scholarships, which will be awarded based on a review of portfolios and a determination of both merit and need. With the mission, “To Inspire Health and Art in the Community,” the local nonprofit focuses on promoting graffiti art and artists through community revitalization projects, funding art education and scholarships for underserved youth in our communities. More information on Graffiti HeArt can be found at graffitiheart.org.

Refund Policy

Plans change! To obtain a refund, please send written notification within three weeks after you made your tuition payment. Since decisions to run the course are based upon the number of paid registrations, there will be no refunds for notifications received more than three weeks after your tuition payment was made.
