Every successful art portfolio is built on a firm understanding of the basics. That’s why we’ll start you off with a series of life drawing exercises that will equip you with the tools you’ll need to grow as an artist.

- One-to-One Guidance:
An instructor will always be close by to answer any questions you may have, provide guidance and demonstrate techniques. The average student-teacher ratio per class is 9:1.

- Experiment and Explore:
In our studios, we’ll also encourage you to venture out of your comfort zones and develop a flexibility of mind. New materials and media are welcome.

- Work at Your Own Pace:
We’ll always leave how fast you advance through your curriculum up to you. As long as you don’t have any immediate deadlines, we’ll encourage research, experimentation and exploration.

Develop Your Artistic Talent:

- What do you want your art to say about you? The ideas you choose to explore are what will separate your artworks from everyone else’s. 

By referring you to the contemporary artists, artworks, and themes that relate most to your own ideas, you’ll be encouraged to express yourself with more clarity, purpose and vision.

- Rather than group lessons, all of our classes are taught on an individualized basis. Our way of working will ensure that you never waste any time in class developing the same skill twice.

- Track Your Progress: Outside of class, you and your parents can track the development of your artworks, ask questions and request feedback 24/7 using our online portfolioTrack™ system.

Student Testimonial:

"I went to many other schools before Oogie Art, but none of them were really challenging. Here, I finish better pieces, a lot faster. Every piece I made was better than the last, and I used to come home very satisfied.

Oogie Art gives me the time and space to focus only on art. Ms. Choi really challenges you and shows you new concepts and techniques...Honestly, if I hadn't gone to Oogie Art, I would have never, ever, gone into art."

- Alex Khomyakov, admitted into RISD with a $92,000 scholarship.
