Summer Session

June 6 to August 15, 2022

We don’t teach art. No one can. But no one can aspire to creative, artistic practice without acquiring the craft of the artist as one’s own.

And craft can only be learned through actual practice.
That’s what we teach, and teach very, very well.

We are here to welcome you into deep, strong, old-school practice.
That practice is always about the new and transformative things
that you’ll experience and create!

Drawing, inks, watercolors, acrylics, oils, and collage.
