We are Tucson’s unprecedented mobile visual art school! We proudly teach as a small service oriented operation in rented spaces around town to aid, sponsor or support the local economy & the vibrant arts community.

“We enable adults at any level to learn, create or cultivate the visual arts within a group setting!“

Serving Tucson, Arizona since the spring of 2016, we provide unique classes & workshops with expert advice in sketching, drawing, art journaling & painting in a variety of mediums, subject matter & visual art techniques. Adults, ages 16 & up (or accompanied by a guardian) are welcome to enroll.
