Our Learning Process

Learning is vital to the success of any classroom, but it doesn't just happen. Our instructors are essential in the process, and we believe good teaching is an art!

We recognize unique visual artists who are lifelong learners with exceptional intrapersonal communication skills as vital in learning. We provide them a platform to teach as visual art instructors, a way to connect with others outside the studio and become an integral part of our overall curriculum.

Each of our instructors creates an experience and is critical in the process. Each builds a community of learners, encouraging individuals to improve their skills or make meaningful connections with others. They create a respectful environment that is warm, welcoming, and non-judgemental, where learners focus on techniques of medium or subject matter, not a specific artistic style or unique aesthetic.
