After School Atelier


After School Atelier (ASA) is a semester-long program that provides NYC public high school and middle school students the opportunity to work in a studio environment and to develop new media art projects under the guidance of Eyebeam’s Teaching Artists.

This outreach program helps students to deconstruct media messages about teens by teaching digital imaging techniques, introducing them to guest-lecturing new media professionals, and engaging them with art and design issues. Each semester Eyebeam holds one class for High School students and one for Middle School students. Each class runs two days per week for 7 weeks, depending on the school schedule. The students are offered opportunities to work on projects cooperatively with the Arists-in Residence, professional mentors, ASA staff, and their peers.
