Learn At Your Pace
All of our workshops have live sessions. However, if the pace is too quick, don’t worry! Every session will be recorded and archived for your convenience.
We’re based in the beautiful city of Chicago, but we don’t want our students or instructors to have geographical barriers. Our workshops are online, always.
Once you’ve enrolled in a course, you have access to that content for as long as it remains in our curriculum. Come back for a review when you need it.
We believe that art education should be radically accessible. We charge enough to keep our platform running and for our faculty to get a fair wage; That’s it.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is this curriculum designed for commercial artist or fine artists?
Both! We understand that for a lot of fine artists, it can feel awkward or even gross to think about their art as a business. We just get tired of the “starving artist” stereotype. It is absolutely possible for artists to live comfortably doing creative work! We want to inspire artist to recognize their own value and find ways to fund their practice.
I just spent a lot of money on a BFA/MFA, why would I need a workshop?
We hear you! We’ve been there. Most undergraduate curriculum is designed to help you become skilled in your medium. You learn the foundations of art-making, the formal elements, and tools of your trade. Most graduate education is heavy on conceptual development, history, & theory. This is all great! However, we recognized a gap between art school education and the aptly named “real world.” We want to fill this gap. How do you build a portfolio website? How do you price and edition your work? How do promote your artwork online? How the heck to you approach taxes? We get into the granular details of how to operate your practice like a brand and a business.
What happens if I start a workshop and I don’t like it / feel it’s not for me?
No problem — we offer a 15-day, no-questions-asked money-back guarantee. If the workshop isn’t right for you, let us know within that window, and we’ll issue a refund right away.
This sounds nice, but will it really help me?
Yes! If there is one thing we are passionate about, it’s helping emerging artists find their place in the world! Our faculty will always be selected because of their real world success. Check out the student feedback on each course page to hear about their experience learning with us.
Do you have any financial aid available?
Yes! We offer one full tuition scholarship for every workshop! Check out our Scholarship page.
