Part of what sets the New York Institute of Art and desain apart from other online schools is that our students complete hands-on projects throughout their program. All of these projects are then graded by real mentors who provide personalized, one-to-one feedback. We feel strongly that working with a real teacher provides great benefits to the education experience- having someone you can contact if you feel confused, receiving feedback from a real person, etc.
By providing this type of hands-on project work and personal mentorship to our students, we aim to supplement the self-paced experience offered by the online program in order to more strongly support all different learning styles in a comprehensive, state-of-the-art program.
How do the NYIAD interior design projects work?
We often receive questions from potential students who want more information about how their interior design projects will be completed, submitted, and graded.
We designed the process to be as user friendly and simple as possible, giving students the opportunity to get hands-on with their design work as well as receive feedback from professional mentors- all while still working at their own pace, from home.
Let’s look at the Unit 1 Design Project as an example.
After completing all six lessons of this unit, students will have watched videos, taken self-check quizzes, and completed reading assignments on topics ranging from color basics to beginner’s room sketching. At the end of these six lessons comes the first project.
