The pastoral beauty of Provence

With the medieval village of Lacoste in the Luberon Valley as a home base, Pre-Bee participants live and learn in the university’s breathtaking, historically preserved residence halls and academic buildings. Expert SCAD faculty and staff lead local excursions and conduct drawing and design workshops that lay the groundwork for success in the university’s academic environment. At the end of the week, participants will travel around Provence and experience artistic points of interest, including Van Gogh's rooms at the Saint-Paul asylum and a Roman archaeological site.

Pre-Bee is open to all incoming SCAD freshmen who have paid the enrollment fee. Acceptance is handled on a first-come, first-served basis and space is limited. Registration requires paying the Pre-Bee program fee in full and is nonrefundable. The Pre-Bee program is extracurricular and not for academic credit. Scholarships cannot be applied.
