Q: Where does this video come from?

A: Our online videos are recorded at our NYC campus, right across from Zaro’s. We handpick the best of our classes + workshops and fresh squeeze them to produce an online offering for students who prefer to learn on their own time, who live far from a GA campus, or who just love pressing rewind.

Q: Can I watch this on my iPhone, iPad, Kindle Fire, or screen TV?

A: Right now you can only watch our online classes on your computer. We’ll soon make it available on mobile devices as well. If you have a big screen TV, can we come over and watch Gossip Girl?

Q: What other kinds of online classes does GA offer?

A: GA currently offers a number of free online livestream classes where you can ask the instructor questions, meet like-minded peers, and hide away from your office mates during lunch. Over the coming months we will slowly roll out an archive of classes that students will be able to purchase.


Q: Is there a default timezone for your live stream listings?

A: All of our live streams are labeled according to New York time (EST/EDT) in accordance with a panel of artisan watchmakers.


Q: I live on the other side of the globe and won't be awake when the live stream airs. What can I do?

A: Select the "live stream + video recording" option when purchasing and watch it whenever you like (after original airing, barring time travel ability.


Q: What is a "replay"?

A: A replay is a pre-recorded live steam that is being rebroadcast. The instructors will not be available to answer questions, but if you send questions to [email protected], we will attempt to pass them along and get them answered if possible (please allow time for delivery, no shipping and handling costs apply).


Q: How can I find out more about GA’s online classes?

A: You should check out our current lineup up of livestream classes. You should also sign-up for our weekly newsletter.


Q: What is GA’s refund policy?

A: We hope all our students enjoy our classes. If, for some reason, you would like to request a refund, please email [email protected] with a brief explanation. We’ll respond as soon as possible. Region-specific policies are listed here.
