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.

Please contact us for taking online classes.

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

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

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.
MATERIALS

All course supplies will be provided to those who have paid a material fee. It will be shipped to the student’s desired mailing address. All students who are not in the Portfolio Preparation and Art Competition class are required to pay the material fee unless otherwise instructed.

COURSES

Portfolio Prep

Portfolio Prep

Ashcan’s Portfolio Prep program helps students to create a unique and coherent body of work that is essential to the pursuit of higher studies. Students get individual attention from instructors to focus on personal projects and develop their creative thinking. We provide past and current work assessments to help them along the way and give them the tools (i.e. online tutorials, photoshop, etc.) they need in order to do so. They are guided by well trained and experienced instructors who have been in their shoes and really know what they are teaching.

Art Contests Prep

Art Contests Prep

Hundreds of Ashcan students have won prestigious Art Awards, including Scholastic Art Awards, the National Duck Stamp Competition, and many more. In the Art Contest Prep course, students learn how to make outstanding artwork that judges will be sure to take notice of above the rest. We work to help each student create projects based on their own skill level and style using a multitude of different mediums.

Drawing

Drawing

Students begin this class by practicing fundamental rendering techniques then move on to developing strategies to combine diverse media, modes of representation, and elements of design to express individual content. Outside research and invention are encouraged. The curriculum culminates in the completion of a series of drawings that display formal and conceptual maturity.

Painting

Painting

Students begin this class by practicing fundamental painting techniques to describe the nature of light and form in the physical world, and then progress to express individual content. The curriculum culminates in the completion of a series of paintings that display formal and conceptual maturity. It is designed to teach the students how they can grow as an artist through visual perception and artistic expression.

Portrait

Portrait

The Portrait course covers comprehensive methods for developing portrait projects, including how to draw facial features, and how to discover ways to represent a subject’s identity through content, color, and texture. The students will truly understand how to not only capture someone’s appearance but their whole character through the piece.

Watercolor

Water Color

A course in the use of watercolor to describe volume, light, and texture. Watercolor is also explored as a medium to be combined with drawing media. We will work to help the students understand this type of medium more in-depth so that they are able to build their own style along the way. They are taught the basic fundamentals of watercolor painting, such as color theory, value, composition, and transparency.
