If I am new to traditional fine art will I be lost in your programs?

Students at Princeton Academy of Art begin at many different skill levels. All students work alongside each other which provides beginners with the opportunity to receive feedback/critiques from not only their instructors but their peers as well. We believe that peer critiques are equally as important as those given by instructors. Community is of great importance to us at PAA and we want each student to grow with us and not feel disconnected from those at higher skill levels than themselves.
