Academy of Art University Offers Free Art and Design Online Workshops this Summer

San Francisco, CA, July 2, 2020 – For nearly two decades, Academy of Art University has offered accredited online art and design degree programs. Academy of Art University is excited to announce that it is offering a wide selection of art and design online workshops in July and August. These online workshops are open to the public and offered free of charge.

Each workshop will run for 90 minutes, and participants will be able to learn hands-on skills and techniques from the Academy’s acclaimed faculty members from its 22 departments or guest working professionals. The workshops are designed to be interactive and engaging; participants have an opportunity to ask questions via chat during the workshop and are encouraged to share their work on social media with a special hashtag, #ArtUFreeWorkshop.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Academy has promptly shifted their on-site classes to online, thanks to its long-established online education program.
