ARC Workshops & Tutoring offers many support options for students, which fall into two categories: Departmental Workshops and Intensive Workshops.

  • ARC Intensive Workshops are onsite-only and by appointment. These are smaller groups that offer help in more general subject areas and software. Click here for the Intensive Workshop schedule.

  • ARC Workshops by Department are course-specific in each academic department, and available on a drop-in basis only. The schedules below list both onsite and online workshops by department.

Students are encouraged to take advantage of these free services to help with classes and assignments. Please note that ARC Workshops are not a substitute for attending class, and are very effective when added to weekly attendance and full participation in class.


Unless otherwise noted, workshops begin Week 3 and run through Week 13. Please check individual schedules, contact tutoring@academyart.edu, or call 415-618-3865 for more information.
