Classical Pedagogy

We teach every individual one-on-one at all times. This classical pedagogy stresses the student’s developing level of craft command as unique from that of all other practitioners in the same room.

Courses and Classes

Please note that a course is not the same as a class. A course may span more than one year if the student attends studio at only the minimum 1-hour per week. Meanwhile, classes for any course take place weekly.

Minimum Class Time per Course

The student must attend at least one, 1-hour weekly class for any course. The exceptions are:

Oil Painting Course, requiring a minimum 1.5 hour weekly class

Portfolio Prep Program (P3), requiring a minimum of 2 hours/week

Additional Courses

Students taking the foundational Drawing course may, at any time, enroll in any other course/s in order to accelerate and deepen practice. Each course you select will carry its minimum weekly hour(s) of class time. Please note your interests in the text box below.

The AAHP offers following courses and typical course progression:

Drawing. This multi-year course covers 11 different media. Note that many of the graphic media and art forms we explore under Drawing also have fuller AAHP courses all their own, such as a Color Pencil course, and Portraiture, for example. Most students, however, then proceed along as follows: Watercolors; Inks; Oils; Acrylics; Collage; Fabric Collage; Mural; Sculpture; and Portfolio.
