There may be a handful of spots left in some of the TAD classes which we are considering opening up to Non-TAD students for this semester only. Do you want to improve your education and portfolio? Would you be interested in taking a single online class with TAD if there are any remaining seats?
When I teach my color theory classes I get the same answer every time, to an important question. "How many of you got this info in art school?". Without fail there is not one student who got all of it in their entire four years of art school. Given that, I understand the value of these classes.
A. Classes would be for only this semester beginning July 12 2010.
B. Tuition would be USD 195/month over seven months or USD 1280.00 up front or in two USD 640.00 installments in July/Aug for this semester
*instructors will vary at times as there are a number of guest professionals and instructors planned for each key class above.
I wanted to see what people thought about this as there may be a few spots open which could be filled by artists who are looking to add to their education with information that can actually improve their work and help their careers.
We look forward to your answers. Again, this is just a poll to see if there is interest. Classes are subject to availability.
Classes begin July 12 and end December 10th.

TAD classes do not have grades. When a student can show they truly know the info, they move on. If not, then it is back to the drawing board, wacom, or easel until practice gets you there. That is how art learning truly works. If you take a class and your work demonstrates all of the information presented you would not have to take the class again and could take an elective instead, if you take the full program next year, and if seats are available when you register.
Regarding curriculum, the sketchbooks class covers a full variety of lectures, demonstrations, and presentations associated with the development of ideas, and in particular your own Personal Point of View, which is key. It covers both digital and traditional assignments and fully utilizes the process used at TAD to develop images and concepts.
The Media 1 class is a comprehensive class with demonstrations, presentations, and assignments covering oil, watercolor, ink, dry media, photoshop and painter tools for creating art. Technique, process, and method is shown and explained in full. Students are encouraged to experiment and push beyond their comfort zones in order to develop fluency in a variety of media which can be used to create personal work and professional art.
Thanks for voting so far. If you are serious please vote and we will contact those who are interested when spots come available. It is first come first serve at TAD and we will help you to the very best of our ability.
We look forward to this coming semester.

Goodness I would die to take part in the colour/composition class. Sadly I'm on the other side of the world and a poor starving student at that. But what you provide sounds absolutely wonderful. And despite being in an art class/school right now. I'm certainly not learning anything from what you're to provide! *woes*
I can't do it this semester, but if the classes remain an open option at that price, I'd love to give it a try the next.
I would certainly be interested in classes but at the moment I simply can't afford it.
I will be surely interested, the only reason i didn't send in my enrollment form is because of the monetary issue. But if this 3 month class is a fraction of the price, it will surely help my career. Where can we sign up?
I would definitely be interested in attending these classes. I would have to make a budget over the course of a couple of months to be able to afford it though. Hopefully, you will get some good results and have these classes available in the near future.
This would be simply amazing, to be able to take 1 or 2 courses online, at an affordable rate! Any big-time colleges I've found either require leaving my country and paying enormous bills, so I've always had to say no and keep dreaming.
My biggest lack of progression is due to lack of confidence, lack of confidence due to lack of practice/study/education.
A kick in the butt like this, from some amazing professionals, would be a wonderful idea!
Could consider this ;O really.
But might be too late for me right now. Besides learning from kings of concept art would feel way too flattering and
Simply, there are more skilled people who want in.
It just looks amazing it's all i can say and i could not agree more with Rashka, myself i belive TAD will be something BIG in future. You know, something that everyone will wanna be in.
And for anyone who is just able to get into there, and has enough skill to be worthy: GET IN, i belive you wont regret it.
But im considering here, and Jason, if i can ask 2 questions: what if; student is not for concept art career, but to learn to become classical artist through theese "modern" teachings, since i mean everything is good to learn, and basically, if there is any teacher who learned even something in Atelier or anything alike, it's after all the information that passed through generations to this moment Isin't it the same as if atelier in this case? Just better?
And secondly, if i'm not technically skilled yet, (i gotta learn first anatomy and all, and i mean completely.) and still student, but i tell you, i do have the passion to work/study for 10 hours easily , and i mean. I really doubt this but, is it enough?

Hi Jason, great offer. Just so you know if TAD was fully part time I would sign up tonight, even if I didn't get a scholarship.
For me it's a problem because I have a well enough paid job in the games industry but I don't have enough money to pay the fees AND not work. If it was part time I would happily pay the fees even if it takes me 5 or 6 years to finish the course .
I hope this helps.
I'm definitely interested and hope I get the cash for it by then, when is the latest paying date for the first month of july? and is it 195$ per month for single subject of our choice for a 7 months period?
Thank you for presenting this opportunity!
I wont be able to attend, lack of funds. I'm sure it's going to be very worth while/money
I would like to know pricing per class for the unit. I won't have enough for full tuition, but if a single class costs a fraction of full tuition I might be able to afford it.
It would be great to attend Sketchbook, Color&Composition and Media !
I couldn't cope with the full monthly fee for now but 1-2 classes for part of the price is a wonderfull opportunity! Will there be some kind of competition for the places?. When/where should we sign up?.
I voted for light and form, color and comp, and sketchbook.
I'd definitely be interested in taking a class, but I was wondering how an art class works online, how far in advance we had to sign up for a monthly payment plan, and what the light and form class and color and comp classes are about. I don't understand how critiques are given and how the teaching is done. Is it over a streaming video or something?
I am planning to move in August so taking an online class would be easiest for me as I will not have a car to take a class at a community college or anything.
What are the advantages of paying to take a class over doing art on our own?
Edit: PS - Do we need to apply to the program with a portfolio or anything if we are only taking 1 class? Thanks
No, I would not be interested in this class.
1. I think the cost is terribly high.
2. Colors appear differently on different computer monitors.
3. I have received quality information from rented or bought DVD's.
4. I prefer to take any class on color in a classroom setting.
I think this a great idea for people who can not afford the full TAD program, Hearing the words of wisdom from a brad Rigney or Marshall Vandruff would be well worth the money. How do we sign up? Will there be a separate enrollment form for these classes?
This sounds like a promising alternative. Even for those like myself who were accepted at TAD but simply can't afford the tuition. From my specific situation, after working in the art industry (hooray for NDA's) for awhile now I would like to view a syllabus before hand to see if it's something I'm not currently doing. Of course I'm not currently being tutored by the masters at CA specifically, but just wondering what the sketchbook course is all about.
very interesting...pity i live in europe : /
I'm leaning towards yes but there are a lot of questions still.
What will be in the program(s)? Color concept, drawing fund., 2D design, 3D design, etc. And, how will this be presented in the online course?
For example, will the instructor use 3D modeling to complement an industrial design course online or will they use live video to present something like creating a clay sculpture? Or a mixture of both?
And, how does this benefit the user online versus taking this class with a physical teacher? What can I get from the teachers that I can't from a DVD?
I've taken a class on CGTalk and know how valuable an online course can be so this could be something I would be looking onto.
I think it's a good idea in general, especially as a sample for those who perhaps couldn't attend Discovery.
While I am interested in taking any one of them, I will be taking a full-time semester at my current school, so it would depend on how much this would conflict.
For example, how much total estimated time per week (lecture and work) will these be?
And also, it would take place on a weekday, right? I know they can be watched on demand, but if I couldn't actually attend a single lecture (due to classes at my current school) to ask questions and otherwise participate, then it would practically just be a subscription for online videos.
Maybe, someday, TAD could offer part-time classes on the weekend for those of us who would have more time on the weekends?
(I'm not necessarily asking for that now since I know this is just getting started, but I think it would be a good idea.)
(Though it did occur to me that some international students may also find some of the class times inconvenient but will just deal with it... so maybe suggesting weekend part time classes is just wishy-washy?)
I'm interested, but like all of the other posts here, there are still lots of questions to be answered before I could commit.
Mostly, why are we paying for 7 months when there are only 5 months of classes? July 12 to December 10 is 5 months.
What is the class schedule (what days and times are the lectures)?
How much time per week is required?
I would also like to see the class curriculum. If there's a link you can point us towards, please do so Jason.
My question is what level has the student ? this class is for beginners or you must have a high level drawing.
And I live outside of USA, I live in Spain (UE) and the difference of hours with USA ( depend of the coast of USA ) is important for me.
The money for me isn't a problem at this moment I'm working. on IT staff (my god I hate a lot this job).
Between the time when the oceans drank Atlantis,
and the rise of the sons of Aryas, there was an age undreamed of.
And onto this, Conan, destined to wear the jeweled crown of Aquilonia upon a troubled brow. It is I, his chronicler, who alone can tell thee of his saga.
Let me tell you of the days of high adventure!
Dunno if I count, but I'd love to be taking a lot of these courses. Figure drawing is a non stop journey so one of the first. I also liked the other courses you gave on color theory and composition. I also would like to see the sketchbook. Well geeze all of them
Course the problem for me is I have a full time job now so I'd have bad attendance.
Already having an MA, I would pick and choose classes based on the instructors and what they are doing with their own work. For me, Jon Foster and Android represent two facets of art that I do not normally use. I do like to paint with oils over digital under paintings, so I have some common ground with Jon. But he gets a lot losser with his paints. That intrigues me. Watching Android work has opened up concepts of digital painting that I would never have grasp on my own.
