What we can provide?

Art Lessons

Our professional artist teachers, Beibei & Leilei spent years teaching students of all levels. As artists, they understand each students have their own potentials expressing art in many formats. They will spend time discovering each of their student's abilities and skills with careful observations.  After all, they will instruct each student by giving specific details.  We are sure that our students will be shining in their art paths in many ways. 

 

To ensure our education quality, we have limited number of seats per class.  

foreign language lessons

Language and art have been historically intertwined as one. At the Academy of Art & Design, we hire teachers who are qualified to teach a foreign language. Choose from Mandarin Chinese, French, Japanese, and Spanish private tutoring or group lessons. We believe the that students should learn a foreign language as early as possible. There are many studies done that show benefits of knowing more than one language.

Our School's Purpose

The purpose of our school is to cultivate innovative artists, designers and interdisciplinary talents in the future, and to provide art and scientific creative thinking courses for the new generation in the artificial intelligence era. For K-12, we will prepare them well for entering university, as well as supplementary courses for college students and adult work. We have great flexibility in the degree of specialization and extensiveness of the curriculum. The art and design school focuses on the cultivation of interdisciplinary innovation and transformative talents. It has both the teaching concept of technology and art integration, and the combination of theory and practice with artistic thinking. 

 

We have creatively changed the most popular STEM teaching method in the world into the STEM teaching philosophy, with "art and design" as the core interdisciplinary education" method. We integrate Asian art and Western art, art and language, science and art, technology and science, and comprehensively improve students' comprehensive ability.
