    I like working with Oogie Art because it is an independent studio class and I can work on what can help me with my portfolio. There is also guidance because the instructors with art backgrounds can help me think of ideas and give suggestions.

  • Olivia Na

    I like it because it helped me a lot for improving my art techniques and ideas. :)

  • Jamin Seo

    I like how everyone is working on their own projects and it is very independent. The teachers are very good at instructing the students on what they should improve on. The studio is very friendly and the art pieces that everyone makes is very impressive. Also, the projects are pretty big, which makes each one more interesting :)

  • Heather Yun

    I liked how the teachers pushed me to make ambitious pieces that were conceptually and technically interesting. I also liked that I was able to experience all sorts of materials like wire, oil and acrylic paint, charcoal, plaster, etc.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

We first interview students to understand their background, goals, and where they're at to create an individualized curriculum. Based on this information, we begin to make a portfolio, making sure students have a strong foundation in technical skills. Along the way, we check in with students to see their progress, comfort with their work, and to make sure goals are being met. Towards the end we help students organize portfolio works for SlideRoom and create engaging artwork descriptions to compliment their application.
