How Does an Online Art Class Work?

An online art class at Sydney Art School is taught live by your tutor.

We use a web-conferencing system so you can see your tutor and other students in real-time.  This is to make the experience as close as possible to being in the class in one of our studio locations.

Your tutor will demonstrate step by step the key elements of the class which you will then practice.

At the end of each step you will be able to show your work back to the tutor and then get feedback on what you did well and what could be improved.

At the end of the lesson you will receive a written guide to remind you of the key points and how to apply what you have learned.
