I was desperately looking to get help with my portfolio for FIT and Ashcan was the perfect place for it. I had no drawing or sewing skills prior to coming here but after taking a few classes I've improved drastically in both of these areas. They helped me through each step of the way and made sure my portfolio was finished on time. I can honestly say that coming to Ashcan was probably the best decision I made in life!

I highly recommend attending Ashcan for portfolio preparation classes because it's the perfect environment to check what level you're at and you learn different things from teachers from various fields. My thought process and ideas have matured as well as my technical skills. I truly discovered my potential and artistic style here; it felt bittersweet to leave after 7 months.
I have learned so much while putting my portfolio together here. Every teacher here is really proffesional and nice! I enjoyed my time a lot learning about art in ashcan studio. Highly recommanded!!
It was very helpful. The course taught me a lot of things i've been struggling with in digital art.
