What you'll learn in this kids art class:

This art studio is designed for students interested in enhancing their college admission portfolios. This section is dedicated to those students who wish to focus on drawing, painting, photography and sculpture. Through skill-building exercises, experimentation, and research-based projects, students develop a personal vision and learn what is expected in a portfolio. Digital workshops inform students about best practices for documenting and presenting finished projects. Students gain skills in communicating about their work in group discussions and learn to offer feedback to peers through critique. 

Prerequisite: art and design experience.

Course Notes: For the 2021 Parsons Summer Academy program (August), students may use free/inexpensive photo editing apps (to be suggested in class). For the Fall 2021 Parsons Academy program, students may use Adobe Creative Cloud (subscription not included) or free/inexpensive photo editing apps (to be suggested in class). For the online sections of this course, all field trips and guest speaker presentations occur as virtual events and experiences.

School Notes:

How to Get Your Newcard:

The Newcard will provide students with a host of additional benefits.In order to claim your New School ID, please visit our office, located at 72 Fifth Avenue, lower level. You will have to present another valid form of photo ID, like a driver's license or passport. Your name must be spelled the same way on your driver's license (or other form of ID) as it is in the New School database; any discrepancy will result in delays in issuing a card.

You may not receive your ID card in time before class. You can print a copy of your registration from my.newschool.edu (Academics Tab -> View Class Schedule and Locations) and present it to security with a photo ID in lieu of the ID card.

Once you receive your ID card you should go to accounts.newschool.edu to obtain your NetID using your N# which is on the ID card. Once you have your NetID you can reset your password. Then using your Net ID + Password, you can log into my.newschool.edu to view your class location, course schedule, and New School announcements.

Alternatively you can call the Reg office (212.229.5620) and they will give the N# to you over the phone after you answer some identifying questions.

Course locations may change up into the first week of classes.Students are usually asked to check their room location the day of or night before their first class. Usually when there is a location change after the first day of class the instructor will send out an email notifying all students on the roster. This is less likely to happen though.

You can also check a location by going to Class Meeting Locations (on www.newschool.edu/registrar, under the Related Links section on the lower right side of the page). You will need to know your subject's subject code or select all subject codes to search.
