Since 2012, Ashcan has worked in partnership with the Joan Mitchell Foundation to help students build competitive portfolios and strong applications for art & design college programs, by collaborating on free public college readiness events including Portfolio Redefined, Art Degree Demystified and the Careers in the Arts Fair. Each year the Joan Mitchell Foundation provides scholarships to local youth to study in Ashcan Studio’s Summer Portfolio Intensive and College Portfolio Preparation Program.

The Ashcan Studio partnership with Arts Bournemouth University was established in 2014. Our agreement was developed to promote acceptance of graduates of Ashcan Studio to students planning to enroll at AUB. Students who complete Ashcan’s year long foundation program gain automatic entry to several of AUB’s BA Programs.
