Current Cooper Union undergraduates serve as teaching assistants to support student success enriching the student experience. Visit the instructor page to learn more about our dedicated and talented faculty. 

Students in the program choose from the concentration sections with courses in Drawing, Animation, Digital Photography, Graphic Design, Studio Practice (for rising seniors). Students in the Animation, Digital Photography, and Graphic Design sections also study drawing (except for those enrolled in the stand-alone half day Digital Photography course). All students participate in special focus workshops each week, social events with refreshments served, field trips to museums, galleries, and artists’ studios. Visiting artists and designers will present their work to classes and in the final week of the program, an exhibition will be mounted showcasing program-created work, and for the celebratory opening (or closing) event we will invite family, friends, and colleagues to view and congratulate the artists. All materials and museum entry fees are included in tuition. Click here to learn more about the program structure and to see class descriptions.
