We Believe Good Teaching is An Art!

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

We recognize that individuals who have not only mastered a specific medium, technique or subject matter and have exceptional intrapersonal or communication skills are unique and vital in the overall process of learning the visual arts. We engage these individuals to be an integral part of the overall 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 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.

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.

We’re fascinated by personal growth, inspiration, and what makes people 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 their own unique style but have a couple of things in common, they are passionate about teaching and believe that anyone can learn to sketch, art journal, draw or paint with knowledge, practice and a supportive community!

They do not endorse a specific artistic style or unique aesthetic. Each encourages individuals to improve their own skills or to make meaningful connections with others which welcomes social learning. They 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.
