ASHCAN ONLINE CLASS

Please contact us for taking online classes. information@ashcanart.com
212-967-8101 (Mon-Sat / 10am-6:30pm)

How it works

We hold all online classes on a platform called zoom. It allows the instructor and student to interact safely from the comfort of their own home while experiencing the same quality of education they would receive in person at the studio. They can chat, share files, and screen share any media back and forth during the lesson.

 

Class Structure

Each class will have a student to teacher ratio of about 6:1.

What's included


PERSONALIZED LIVE LESSONS

We teach students based on their own skills and needs. We focus on what works best for each individual regardless of what class they’re taking with others.

live-demos


LIVE DEMOS

All of our teachers provide live demonstrations of the work during the lessons so that each student can follow along more simply. Communication is the key in order to succeed at building the best educational atmosphere possible.

video-tutorials


VIDEO TUTORIALS

Each course (drawing, painting, watercolor, etc.) will come with online video tutorials that will help the student study a bit more on their own outside of their regular lesson. They can watch the videos provided some time before or after the class in order to have a better understanding of the material they’re learning.


PRIVATE ONLINE MENTORING/CRITIQUE

  • Art and Design / Young artist program - Conferences are provided each semester, which will cover personal progress consultations and follow-ups on our Young Artist Roadmap Action Plan.
  • Art competition - Students will be recommended to apply for seasonal competitions after in depth evaluations. They will then be assisted throughout the preparation of their portfolios, completion of their applications and final submissions.
  • Portfolio preparation - We know the importance of getting into not only the best schools but getting into a school that will be the best fit for the student themselves. We're here to provide them with guidance in choosing which projects to work on for their portfolio and the most suitable majors that will cater to their strengths as an artist. Through private meetings outside of their regular session, additional work assessment is given to those in need.

ASHCAN SUMMER PROGRAM 2020

Portfolio Preparation

The portfolio is THE MOST critical component to a College or Graduate School application. Developing a unique and coherent body of work is of paramount importance and essential to the pursuit of higher studies.

 

Fine Arts & Design Program

The intensive VA course stimulates creative and critical thinking through the practice of experimentation in the studio. Process, open- dialogue, and familiarization with materials are all promoted and focused upon.

 

Young Artist Program

The program was developed to catapult and stimulate creativity through teaching young artists the historical and contemporary art techniques of sculpture, painting, drawing, and more. We encourage artistic expression and experimentation in order to develop skills, confidence, and openness to new creative ideas and cultures.
