Through online courses at SVA, students have the opportunity to learn from outstanding professionals — currently working in New York City and around the world. Honoring the progressive history and vivid spirit of SVA Continuing Education, we are carefully creating and curating a broad range of online courses. It is now easier than ever before to connect with timely and innovative educational content and build global communities of learners and practitioners of art and design.
SVA online courses are accessible to all learners, giving students the opportunity to build their skills and extend their creative community from any location with an internet connection. Our online courses are asynchronous to enable students to participate from any time zone and on their own schedule. In other words, they are filled with opportunities for interaction with the instructor and other students, but it is not required that you log in at a specific time of the week.
The School of Visual Arts online course are hosted in Canvas, our College-wide learning system. Most computers (5 years old or newer recommended) can access the course(s) without a problem. The courses work with Windows (Windows XP, SP3 and newer), Macintosh (Mac OSX 10.6 and newer), and Linux (chromeOS). Participants will need a minimum screen size of 1024x600 (the average size of a netbook) and good broadband Internet connection to participate in the online courses.
