New York, NY, April 09, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- New York Film Academy (“NYFA”) and New York Film Academy Australia (“NYFA Australia”) announce their new online workshops, expanding their virtual offerings to an additional 11 areas of study in film, media and the performing arts.
NYFA’s new online workshops will support the college’s “hands-on” approach to learning, while students continue to draw on the knowledge from industry professionals, virtually.
The decision to create a new series of heightened online workshops with continued hands-on learning aspects for individuals came after the startling reality of current global events, a time when staying home to remain safe and healthy is not only a global priority, but in many cases a necessity.
“We feel launching these online courses is especially timely when many aspiring artists interested in studying at NYFA must stay home to remain safe and healthy.” says NYFA President Michael Young. As more people are finding themselves housebound, this is their opportunity to explore an artform they’ve always had a passion for.
The expanded online workshop offerings allow students the ability to connect with instructors and classmates in a virtual and global classroom, from the comfort of their own home, all while creating original pieces of work. Each workshop includes live instruction, group meetings, and additional one-on-one consultations with instructors. Like NYFA’s mission for on-campus instruction, class sizes are kept small to allow for optimal teacher-student interaction, discussion, and critiques. Throughout the workshops, students will learn by doing as they complete their projects offline.
To date, NYFA’s online workshop offerings, for adults, include:
- 4-Week Online Film Directing
