Our Approach

Art is our passion! We believe that everyone can learn how to make art and enjoy the satisfaction and joy of creating something with your own two hands!

We believe in giving our students the guiding principles to what makes a work of art great and then allowing them to express their own unique style.

Our Story

We started as three art teachers in the public school system who wanted  more for our community and expanding the opportunities to make art is our primary goal!
