Our Mission

Community First!

Our organization was built on social connections that gave rise to the emergent properties of a school, where a community-level phenomenon developed that cannot be attributed to any one member or portion of the whole. We pride ourselves on making the local community a better place. We strategically partner with other small businesses or organizations to share the same vision or worthy cause. It's how we got started. To read more about our history, click here.

‘Cultivate the Visual Arts Community of southern Arizona!’

Our Vision

We Are Mobile!

We are atypical in that we do not have a dedicated building of our own. We partner with other local organizations or small businesses to aid, sponsor & support the local economy & art community by renting spaces around Tucson, Arizona.

Instructors are Essential!

Learning is vital to the success of any classroom, but it doesn't just happen. Our team of instructors is essential in the process.

We recognize that individuals who have not only mastered a specific medium, technique, or subject matter are unique and vital in the overall process of the learning process of learning the visual arts. We engage these individuals to be an integral part of the broad curriculum, provide them a platform to teach and connect with a community of learners.

‘Teaching might even be the greatest of the arts since the medium is the human mind and spirit.’

John Steinbeck

We're fascinated by personal growth, inspiration, and what makes others want to create within a collective. We love our community of lifelong learners. They inspire, cultivate, and help us grow!

‘Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.’

Benjamin Franklin

Our instructors have unique teaching styles and create their own particular art. However, they have a couple of things in common. They are passionate about teaching and believe that anyone can learn to sketch, draw or paint with knowledge, practice within a supportive community!

Instructors do not endorse a specific artistic style or unique aesthetic. Individuals are encouraged to improve their own skills with individual one-on-one attention, explore their own creative abilities. They promote social learning and guide the classroom to make meaningful connections to others.  

Instructors foster a culture of knowledge, sharing, & growth in a welcoming, encouraging, & considerate environment as they seek to explore the vibrant intersection between educating adults, lifelong learning, and articulating their own artistic vision.
