Foundations of Studio Practice Online:

A Fulfilment Program to Complete Session IV

Starting Tuesday, July 28th, 2020, we will run weekly, online, two-hour classes to fulfil the remainder of our Winter/Spring Session IV (March 2 – May 3 2020), which was cut short due to the Covid-19 pandemic and national emergency.

This online program will run for three weeks, and ends on Thursday, August 13th.

While these classes fulfil the missed portion of Winter/Spring Session IV, we will not continue where we left off in live studio back in March 2020. Rather, it is the beginning of our new online program. We have curated a number of challenges from our curriculum, and will enter one new challenge each and every week.

In order for your youngster to qualify for this initial set of online classes, they must meet all of the following requirements:

  1. Student must have been registered, with tuition paid in full, for Winter/Spring Session IV (March 2 – May 3 2020)
  2. Student must be between the ages of eight and twelve
  3. Student must be able to access and participate in the online classes in accordance with the Technical Guidance on Setting Up at Home

In summer 2020, Foundations of Studio Practice Online will not be offered online for our “draftlings” ages 5-7, or for adults ages 18 and up. Live studio classes for these two groups will be offered first, once we re-open the live studio.

For students age 13-17, please see more information on joining our summer 2020 college track program, P3.O, here.

How to Reserve your Online Fulfilment Class Slot

Online classes that fulfill the interrupted programming of Session IV will be held twice a day, three days a week. You will have plenty of options to choose from, for your convenience!

Your youngster will attend one weekly time slot. This time slot will be their regular slot each and every week through August 13, 2020.

Please make sure that your slot selection will suit your youngster throughout the duration of the make-up classes, which will run for three straight weeks.

There will be no make-ups available if a class is missed. Each week will feature its own unique class. Arrangements to attend a different time slot in any given week can be made ahead of time, but only ahead of time, and only if there is available space in another time slot.

Available time slots:

            Tuesdays, 2-4 p.m. or 5-7 p.m.

            Wednesdays, 2-4 p.m. or 5-7 p.m.

            Thursdays, 2-4 p.m. or 5-7 p.m.

In order to reserve your desired time slot, please notify Senior Instructor Aaron S. Balavram of your preference in writing. You can do so via email, at, or via text, at 732-359-4450.

Please offer a backup choice, in case your first preference has already been filled.

Aaron will, in turn, confirm your primary or secondary selection once he confirms that your youngster has indeed met the qualifications mentioned above.

Once your time slot has been confirmed, you will receive regular reminders via text and email for each coming week, concerning what your youngster will need to have ready for their weekly class.

Your Youngster’s Unfinished Artwork Still Housed in Studio 

Since we are starting with a new platform and a new curriculum, this artwork will not be continued or finished through our program. We will help you retrieve these works over time, and your youngster is welcome and encouraged to finish them on their own. These works will no longer be considered AAHPdirected artworks.

Starting on Friday, August 14, please contact Aaron to make your pick-up arrangements. Thank You.
