ArtOne knows that, more than ever before, institutions need to maintain high admission requirements. Standards for admission should consider an applicant's preparation, previous education and experience, and demonstrable evidence of future success.
ArtOne is designed to be a bridge to help prospective international students connect to colleges that can advance their creative careers. To that end, we offer programming that prepares them for college with a quality curriculum and support systems, all to create known applicants for AICAD schools.
Our curriculum and its support programs are dedicated to building creative students' capacity for academic and career success with solid studio skills that are contextualized through instruction in art history and theory, and taught in English to develop essential research and critique competencies. We then match these students with AICAD institutions that best serve their academic major and their career aspirations.
Our outcomes are open to the input of our partners and collaborators. We welcome the voices of faculty and staff, and encourage them to engage in the review of student work and participate in the curriculum. The end result is that we offer known, well-qualified applicants. With support from AICAD faculty and by following NASAD standards, we believe that we offer an exceptional program delivering better-prepared applicants.
Our partners and our collaborators all want the same thing: success! We believe the secret to that success is communication and collaboration. We use our knowledge of our partners and collaborators to organize ourselves as a bridge to serve both. As a result, we welcome and offer regular opportunities for staff and faculty in both the U.S. and China to come together and work to constantly improve ArtOne.
