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.

ASA Spring 2002 The Spring 2002 ASA-Program took place at Eyebeam Atelier's new West 21st Street classroom and served 30 NYC public middle and high school students, selected with the assistance of the Manhattan Superintendents Office. The 12-week program focused on the themes of teen identity and the deconstruction of media messages about teens. Students worked in a studio environment; learning different media tools via an instructor and a diverse group of guest speakers from the art and technology fields. The ASA students rotated to work with different students in small teams throughout the semester, with the ultimate goal of finishing a series of small projects for their digital portfolios. Student work was presented at the Eyebeam exhibition space during a family art and technology showcase at the end of the program.

ASA 2003 Middle School students participated in Acoustic Ecology and Soundscape Recording. Hearing goes largely under-utilized in contemporary society, frequently being relegated to a mere accentuation of our visual world. In this course, participants will be exposed to a wide range of ideas, techniques and technologies for focusing and sensitizing their aural awareness of the world around them. They will consider how enhancing this aural awareness can alter their relationship to the urban environment and what impact human sound making has on that environment

ASA Spring 2004 The Spring 2004 class, entitled Recycling Media, was initially planned as an experiment in combining the processes of stop-motion animation with that of collage and video appropriation. Teaching Artist Andrew Lynn originally envisioned a single experimental documentary being the product of this class, but the course evolved according to the needs and wishes of the students, and instead produced several short ones. "I could not have planned a course to turn out such diverse projects as the ones produced here in the past weeks," stated Lynn. "The work seems to be a result of me letting go of some of the core ideas that were important to me at the outset and embracing the new ones that were brought to table by the student artists."

ASA Spring 2005 High School Fakes: Digital Documentary and the Animation of ‘Truth’ Teaching Artist: Benj Gerdes Experiments in simulation, forgery and dishonest documentary provided a basis for a class dialogue around ethics and the concept of truth in our contemporary political moment, alongside reconsiderations of the relationship of sound, image, and text in critical art practices. Middle School Electronic Recycling Teaching Artist: Federico Muelas Students worked with Basic Stamp microcontrollers, commonly used sensors (light, motion, heat, touch, etc), and basic physical computing to control “hacked” old and/or out of order devices such us VCRs, slide projectors, computers, and electronic toys. The 'recycled' equipment was re-engineered to develop a series of projects which comprise a visitor-driven interactive installation.
