About Us

We are an unprecedented mobile Visual Arts school, serving Tucson, Arizona since the spring of 2016! We proudly teach drawing, sketching, art journaling or painting in person within a classroom setting in a variety of mediums, subject matter & visual art techniques. Adults, ages 16 & up (or accompanied by a guardian) are welcome to enroll.

Our Team of Instructors

Our instructors are key in the learning process and want to share the verve with you! Each is experienced, supportive, knowledgeable, perceptive and clear. They focus on teaching techniques not a specific style. They create a warm, welcoming, encouraging and respectful classroom environment, where students can make meaningful connections, develop or improve their skills.

“We believe that good teaching is an art!“
