If they must miss a class they will notify everyone and add a class to the end of the semester. Most classes end in mid January.
All classes meet live. All class times are listed in US Eastern Time--the time zone of New York City. This time zone observes Daylight Saving Time.

The core of SmArt School is our mentorship program. These are highly interactive small groups working for 14 weeks with a renowned artist who also brings a high level industry professional into class to review student work towards the end of class.
Course audits have also become a popular item. In a course audit an artist watches a full mentorship as an observer. Learn more about course audits here.
We are an artist-run school. We understand the need for creative community. So we do all kinds of extra things to broaden student's educational opportunities, professional contacts, and publicity.
Every student who enrolls in a full mentorship also gets a FREE Course Audit. It's almost like getting two courses for the price of one. You get to watch another course for free. More about course audits here.
Every student who completes a full mentorship beyond the beginner classes also has the option to have a free portfolio on the Alumni Portfolios page.
All alumni with portfolio pages can also join competitions where industry professionals, such as Art Directors or Gallery Directors, review alumni work. The competitions are free for alumni.
We also have an Alumni News page where we broadcast the successes of our alumni.
We also regularly broadcast alumni achievements on our Instagram Check it out! It has lots of fun work by emerging and established talent.
