Online Classes

Online Classes – Fall 2020

These online classes are being offered during our Fall 2020 in response to the COVID-19 crisis.

PEASE NOTE: We’ve found that The Art Academy benefits students in two distinct ways. First, there is the level of our instruction, but equally important is the informal interaction pupils have with fellow students and teachers. To that end, EVERY online class includes a weekly Friday Night Hangout Session.

These sessions form a gathering of like-minded individuals which allows you or your child to work on a project while casually enjoying the company of others – and there is always a teacher monitoring the session, so you can get extra help with any challenges you may be experiencing in your artwork.

You may also use these Hangout Sessions to make up any classes that you may have missed throughout the term!
