Drawing-Art studio NYC
Students begin this class by acquiring and reviewing fundamental descriptive drawing concepts and techniques in various media, including ink, graphite, charcoal and collage. Students also learn methods for developing individual content. As students develop their ideas, they focus and hone their abilities in the media of their choosing, including color media. In addition to experienced faculty, students also have access to the studio’s library, computer lab, and live figure drawing sessions. They research and invent strategies and techniques for combining diverse media, modes of representation, and design elements. The curriculum culminates in long-term drawings and series of drawings that display formal and conceptual maturity.

With a strong foundation in descriptive drawing, students explore color and surface texture through the Painting curriculum. While students learn how mix colors and to describe the nature and color of light in the physical world, they also discover non-representational, design-based applications of paint media. Techniques in water-soluble acrylic and watercolor paints are emphasized, and students are encouraged to utilize oil paints and other paint media that may be suitable for executing their individual concepts.
Sculptural techniques are taught in three broad categories; clay modeling, mold making and casting, and assemblage. In addition to their drawing skills, students learn to “sketch” in three dimensions by creating clay and wire maquettes and quick assemblages. Sometimes, students create sculptures as a subject for a drawing or a painting. At other times, students learn to translate their two-dimensional sketches into three-dimensional forms. Advanced students learn how to develop their ideas in both two- and three-dimensional media, and may at times create works that combine the two.
The Design courses cover the fields of Fashion Design, Accessories Design, Jewelry Design, Graphic Design, Advertising, Computer Arts, Industrial Design, Theater and Exhibition Design.The goal of this program is to develop drawing skills, and investigate historical and contemporary design trends to use as a resource for personal design work.
Ashcan Instructors guide students in developing a compelling, innovative, and mature portfolio to apply to a BFA or MFA design program.
The Architecture and Interior Design courses allow students to learn fundamental concepts of space design such as scale and program through series of 2-dimentional and 3-dimentional projects.
Emphasis is on understanding of basic structural systems, historical transitions in design concepts, and social functions of architecture, in relation to individuals’ creativities.
Students will get encouraged to develop their own perspectives about space through individuals’ creative acts, and this would provide critical preparations to pursue their further studies in architecture and interior design.
Through the program students learn the powerful combination of artistic knowledge and technical skills to create unique modern art, high-quality digital projects. This course explores the range of skills within the design process, from the original visual response to a design, to the communication of messages. Within the context of new media, students use critical thinking, creative problem solving, and conceptual skills to develop a sophisticated body of work.
In the Garment Construction course students learn the professional techniques used in the construction of garments. Pattern making, sewing, cutting, construction, and finishing techniques are used to create garments in cotton or cotton-type fabrics. Areas of concentration are the garments fit, balance, style, creativity and proportion.
Through our classes students learn how to take their big ideas and make them visible to their world. Through the support and expertise our instructors offer, all of these little artists develop confidence in themselves and appreciation for the beauty and subtleties the world has to offer.
They have the chance to see their work celebrated through our regular student art shows, which prove to them the quality of their own minds. We celebrate their talents and they constantly reward us with their genius.
