The lesson structures

Our live online sessions happen two times per week and are optional. You do not need to join in, but once you do we think you will be hooked. During the classes, you can ask questions and get feedback on your tracks. If you prefer, you can just sit quietly and listen.

Most students come to one live session per week. The schedules are posted on the website well in advance. The two sessions are usually scheduled to allow students in different time zones to attend.

To join the live session simply click the link that we will send to you – no additional software is required. If you have a webcam the teacher will be able to see you, but if you don’t that’s fine. You will always be able to see and hear the teacher, in real-time.

Bang Bang Education — Our Inspiration

Future Media Academy’s educational program is inspired by Bang Bang Education, a school for illustration and design that was founded in 2014 in Moscow, Russia. The school’s innovative approach was developed as a response to a lack of training courses available to artists who don’t come from conventional training backgrounds.

Bang Bang Education encourages each and every student to explore what makes them unique and to stretch the boundaries of their creative potential. To look beyond the rules and structures that can hold us back.

Future Media Academy and Bang Band Education offer creative and passionate people, of all skill levels, the opportunity to learn from the best professionals in the industry at a convenient time, from anywhere in the world.

At the moment there are 82 teachers, 77 courses and 36,000 students at Bang Bang Education. These numbers continue to grow as our message spreads throughout the world.
