Late-summer greetings to you from the Senior Staff of the Academy of Art of Highland Park!
AAHP Director Ana is back from her artventure across Cuba,
Senior Instructor Aaron is back from Bermuda, and
Tech Extraordinaire David survived his math summer courses at Rutgers.
We hope that you have also stretched yourself into new experiences!
Recapping Last Year
Thanks to you and your fellow apprentices, our studio year 2015-2016 was extraordinary, with new, amazing students of all ages, a huge amount of learning and output, and tremendous success in all sorts of art competitions, where our apprentices continued to garner the very top prizes.
Meanwhile, some 10 members of our college bound Portfolio program were admitted—often with scholarship---into the likes of Carnegie Melon University, Columbia University, Rhode Island School of Design, Pratt, and many other top schools in engineering, science, architecture, art and design.
Here’s to Studio Year 2016-2017
Let’s make 2016-2017 another record-setting year! We’re ready to get you back to high creative action and deep study at the bench, easel, wall, and field.
We strive to be one of the best apprentice studio experiences you may ever experience. Given the testimony we regularly receive from our alumni, who often write to us many years later, we still hold that distinction, while working to improve services to you everyday.
You will find a new studio space entirely dedicated to children, and a new office space upstairs on the second floor, where we can attend to you in with increased privacy and comfort.
You’ll also love Anu, the AAHP’s new Client Services Coordinator/Registrar. She’s ready to help answer your questions, allot your seating preferences and make-ups, and make your overall experience that much more comfortable and fun.
The studio exists for only one reason, and that is to grant you a highly individualized opportunity for learning and for pursuing creative action, while also exploring the common craft practice that all strong practitioners in the plastic arts share. Join us in this beautiful practice.
