Overview

The ARC Workshops & Tutoring department provides academic support and creative inspiration in a friendly, supportive environment that addresses students' art and design, drawing, communication, and technical needs. We offer specialized workshops by department, as well as individualized tutoring in a range of subjects, free of charge, to all current Academy of Art University students, for every major and most courses, online and onsite, both undergraduate and graduate.

ARC Workshops offer students supplemental instruction to help them improve their skills and knowledge. They are taught by Academy faculty who have been chosen for both their expertise and their passion for helping students. Students are encouraged to take advantage of these services to help them with their classes and assignments; however, they should also make use of other support options to avoid falling behind. ARC Workshops and Labs should not be regarded as a substitute for attending class and are effective only in conjunction with continued weekly attendance and participation.
