FAQs

Where do your tutors come from?

Our tutors have been selected from the best of our own student body: some of our principle tutors and all of our program directors were students more than 10 years ago. They are aided by a large group of student assistants – recent alumni and third year students who help with the daily critiques. Students receive one critique in the morning and one in the afternoon on their individual projects, whether they are working on a cast or still life in their studio space, or are in front of the model. The many competent works on our web site is fruit of this teaching methodology and of the dedication of our students to their studies.
