Teaching & Learning Art Online: For Students

Welcome art students!

While your teachers are working hard to transition to remote classrooms, here at Art Prof we can provide additional support to help you continue your studies.

We recognize that remote learning is much more than just content you are absorbing. You’ll need to figure out how to set up a work space at home that fosters productivity, create good work habits that you can rely on, maintain a positive mindset in your work, connect with your peers, and stay motivated about your artwork.
