Visual arts
Visual storytelling has the unique power to engage an audience by communicating narratives in an impactful, immediate way and immersing the viewer directly in the moment. The visual arts encompass the many disciplines of storytelling,from film to photography and 3D animation to game design, all of which are offered at NYFA.

The central philosophy of theNew York Film Academy is “learning by doing.” From the first day, students find themselves practicing their art, getting hands-on experience, and building a portfolio or reel that may help them long after they leave the Academy. NYFA’s visual arts curricula are centered around project-based learning, where students work in state-of-the-artfacilities and with industry-standard equipment and software, building askill set and knowledge base that are the foundations for success in their chosen profession.

Among their many varied talents, New York Film Academy faculty members each possess two very important qualities: they are accomplished in their fields, and they know how to translate their experiencesinto the classroom. They bring real-world experience to the classroom and the education necessary to impart their own learning, experience, and knowledge to their students. Instructors provide passionate, intensive, and comprehensive lessons through lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on workshops that allowstudents to immediately apply theirlessons in the field and inspire them to reach their creative potential.
