For the remaining 13 weeks of the academic semester, students work in their studios focusing on their area of choice: Painting or Sculpture. For the first two years Students are placed in an Atelier setting, where they are given a space which allows them to explore and immerse themselves in their main area of study.

Ruby on Rails 5 Basics In this course, we're going to set up a simple blogging app with just a handful of Rails commands. Then, we'll dive into what we've created and help you really understand what's going on. We'll show you how to work with models, views, and controllers to quickly add new features to your app. By the end of this course, you'll be ready to create basic web apps in Rails. What you'll learn Creating Rails apps Models Views Controllers Creating an App We'll create a new Rails app, and a simple resource. A resource is something you want users to be able to create, read, update, and delete instances of. With just a couple Rails commands, your site will be ready to run and fully interactive! Handling Requests In this stage, we'll take a closer look at the resource we've created, and show you how Rails handles requests. Using the Rails Console The Rails console is useful when you need to do an operation on many model objects at once, or to look at model attributes that you haven't yet added to your views. We'll show you how to update model objects using the console. Adding a Model Attribute Our app is able to store titles for our posts, but we forgot to add a post body to hold the actual post content. In this stage, we're going to fix that. First, we need to add a column to the database, so that our post model objects can store the value of their body attributes. Then we'll need to update our views to let us show those values. And finally, we'll need to update the controller to allow new body text to be submitted from HTML forms.

The Platform Year

 

Training the acting instrument is the first goal in year one. The Meisner technique, voice and text, movement and improvisation introduce you to the road of discovery of one’s self as an artist. Next, you begin to explore the technical aspects of working in front of a camera and have the opportunity to learn the information necessary for an actor to function with professionalism on a set.You also begin to work on your craft. You start to explore the given circumstances of a scene and how to own them in an authentic way, taking what the writer has given you and learning how to make those circumstances your truth.While there are many facets to a successful acting career, it all starts with the pure artistry of acting. So your first year at NYCDA is dedicated to developing your acting instrument. It’s an exciting year where you’ll find yourself as an actor and grow, building essential skills and techniques to craft authentic, believable performances. Our program is grounded in the Meisner technique, pioneered by American master Sanford Meisner. You will also study the Stanislavski System of acting, from which all modern acting techniques derive. Of course, you will also receive extensive training in voice, movement, improvisation and more.As the year progresses you’ll really develop your craft, exploring each scene’s unique circumstances so the truths the writer has given you fuel every  movement, every impulse, every expression and inflection. At the end of this year comes the fork in the road where you declare whether you’ll be continuing in our Film and Television Performance Program or the Theater, Film and Television Performance Program with its added emphasis on theater.
