Academy Weekly: Perspective Drawing, Language Requirements and Online Learning for International Students

RSVP to join our FREE online workshop on Perspective Drawing tomorrow, August 4, on ZOOM. Don’t miss out on this chance to improve your art foundations! Also, check out below what you missed last week on the blog.

 You still have a chance to make the most of this summer, so put on your masks and enjoy the sun while you still can! Fall is coming up next just around the corner, which means you also have to prepare for the upcoming semester.

As with the rest of 2020, this one’s going to be memorable, to say the least. There’s no need to let the pandemic slow you down with your art and design degree, though!

Continuous Learning

It doesn’t matter where you are, you still can earn a college degree from an American school like Academy of Art University. Yes, even without being able to physically travel. That’s what the internet is for!

Here are some helpful tips on language requirements to prepare for your online international classes, especially if you’re not a native English speaker.

And here are some compelling, practical reasons why asynchronous learning is best for online students, whether domestic or international.

Free Workshop

As we’ve said, we’re offering FREE online workshops not only to help you tide through this disruption in the academic calendar. This week, it’s the Foundations’ department’s turn. Join lead faculty member Joko Budiono in a 60-minute interactive workshop (RSVP here) on how to create engaging compositions and environments using perspective techniques.

Speaking of which, here are some perspective basics you might want to check out before logging in to the workshop tomorrow.

We’ll be back for more next week, so we’ll see you again then!
