How will you study?

— You receive the video material (about 1 hour long, plus all the recorder reviews of assignments made by other students). You can watch all those materials on your profile page*.

— You carefully watch all those videos, making sure you understood the term of the assignment you're about to tackle.

— You make this assignment using software or on the paper.

— You upload completed assignment on your profile page.

— About three times a month you will be invited to a private or group calls with Sasha, where you can receive feedback, ask questions and get corrections.

— Also the teacher can organize group call in order to check on group progress or answer to the most frequent questions. You will be informed about this meeting in advance.

*You get your own profile page on our platform, where you can watch and upload videos, chat with teacher or classmates.

 

Technology

We encourage old-fashioned way of study as more effective one: paper and pencil. So if you choose to make your assignments that way, you will need a light table or light box, pegs — all this equipment you can order with our help. You can make holes in your paper using your own punch machine or while visiting life drawing session, held in Moscow by our teacher Tatiana.

If you don't have the ability to work with pencil — or simply don't want to — you can always use special software, which we will gladly provide.

Free scholarship for a half a year!

Since September 2014 we included one free scholarship with full coverage of every expense. Duration of this scholarship is one term. Every student from any group, ready to show his ability to work hard and produce results, is eligible to receive this scholarship.

 

How does this work?

After the examination period is over Sasha chooses the one student that outdone him/herself, made a breakthrough during the assignment, and grants this student the scholarship! If the student is eager to save scholarship and will produce the same outstanding results during further studies, we would be glad to prolong it!

 

But what if more than one student shows those results?

We always encourage the students to aim for the stars, so if more than one student will show equally outstanding performance, we will gladly grant scholarship to both of them! Just remember, that scholarship is awarded twice a year, at the end of January and May.

 

We wish every student luck, success and willingness to show their best!
