The New York Institute of Art and Design has launched their online learning center, and officially introduced the school's three most popular courses, The Complete Course in Interior Design, The Complete Course in Wedding Planning, The Complete Course in Event Planning and Jewelry Design: Beading and Wire Working, entirely online to students all over the world.

The NYIAD online learning center is accessible via desktop or laptop computer, smartphone or tablet, wherever students have an internet connection. Students can now access everything they need for their online course in one place – lessons, audio clips, video training and tests.

The Interior Design Course is approved by Certified Interior Decorators (CID) International. Students learn design trends, color theory, concepts of scale and proportion, furniture styles, lighting, and fabrics. Alongside their NYIAD mentor, students complete a variety of room designs and develop a portfolio of professional-quality work. By the time they graduate, students have the artistic and the business skills needed to work as an interior designer.

The Wedding Planning Course is recognized by the Association of Bridal Consultants (ABC). Students learn how to turn their passion for weddings and events into a career. From pre-planning to execution, the course teaches students how to work with clients and vendors to plan any event. All students who complete the course have a solid foundation in the business of wedding planning; they are ready to work in the field that they love.

The Event Planning Course teaches students the foundation to ensure the success of any event. Learn the art of networking, which as any event planner will tell you, is essential to success. When you complete the course you will be ready to plan meetings, parties, fundraisers, and any of life's big events.

The Jewelry Design Course teaches students to create and sell their own unique line of jewelry. Students learn the basics of color theory and composition, patterns, beading, jump rings, spirals, right-angle weaves, and a wide array of other techniques. The course also teaches basic photography and marketing skills so that students can go on to sell their jewelry online and at trunk shows.

"The New York Institute of Art and Design's mission has always been to provide the highest quality training to anyone interested in advancing their skills," said NYIAD Education Director Jay Johnson.
