Don’t just study art
“If you hear a voice within you say, ‘You cannot paint,’ then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced”
– Vincent Van Gogh
Our vision is to bring art history to life. Our goal is to teach the techniques and different art movements using a hands-on approach. We realize that sitting in a history class and memorizing dates isn’t what art history is all about. Learning art history in an interesting way is a nice side benefit, but learning how to apply the techniques of the masters improves your art and lets you discover your own unique style. We don’t want your creativity stuffed in a book; unleash your creativity and let it fill your canvas!
“Every child is an artist, the problem is staying an artist when you grow up”
– Pablo Picasso
