New to the Art Verve?

Verve is synonymous with vigor, the energy or enthusiasm behind expressing an idea, which is vital in the creative process! Artists need this type of stuff to keep on creating over time.

Rebecca Miller
Previously enrolled in drawing and watercolor classes.

"I had put down my art interest for more than two years. I needed something to 'kick-start' it again. I took two classes from Art Verve Academy. They were 'Drawing the Human Head' with Christy Olsen and 'Exploring Watercolor Textures' with Stacy Egan. Both of these classes & their instructors were very, very good & just what I needed to 'kick-start' my art activities again. I would strongly recommend these classes & the Art Verve Academy!!!"
