Summer Session runs - June 16th - August 4th
TAAS runs on a quarter system. Each class meets once a week for seven weeks with an orientation week, except our intensives. The schedule makes for an eight-week commitment (except for intensives) during our seasonal sessions. Classes meet for a period of two and half hours and will include substantial individual and group homework. Outside of your course(s), campus life runs weekly programming through the session period (usually 10 weeks long) that is included with your course and open to all members of the Alternative Art School's global online community

At TAAS, we believe in quality education with small class sizes. Here a student does not get lost. You are not a number, you are an artist that the faculty & staff knows. Artists have opportunities for one-to-one feedback, studio crits, and office hours.
The Alternative Art School is more than classes, it’s a community. As a global school we are interconnecting driven artists around the world with fellow artists, instructors, and organizations. Through TAAS’s visiting lecture series, we will bring in guest artists and organizations to enrich the digital class experience. Through our innovative online platform and campus programming, students are able to intercommunicate, receive feedback, collaborate on projects, and share resources all within one place. We have welcomed over 350 global artists and curators into our community since 2020. Once you take a class at TAAS, you become a member of our community forever. If you have questions about TAAS courses or our community, reach out to us, we are a human place.
