What’s Our Learning Process?

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

We recognize unique visual artists who are lifelong learners and have exceptional intrapersonal communication skills as vital in learning. We provide them with 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.

"Tell me, and I forget, teach me, and I remember, involve me, and I learn." -Benjamin Franklin.

We believe good teaching is an art!

Learning is vital to the success of any classroom, but it doesn't just happen. We believe that good teaching is an art! Each of our instructors creates an experience, and they are 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.
