Smart School Enrollment

Smart School is a 15 week online mentorship program to help artists make that artistic leap they've been trying to make. This is not a pre-recorded video lesson. It is actual one-on-one time with personalized feedback on your work from some of the industries top professionals. Enrollment for the Spring Semester just opened.

IMC Enrollment

The IMC workshop is an intensive week-long workshop in Amherst, MA, and has the reputation of being 'life-changing' for a reason. Imagine 4 years of college crammed into a single, awe-inspiring, week of painting, lectures, demos, portfolio reviews and special guests. There really is nothing else that compares. Attendance is limited to about 90 students each year, most of which are already gone, but there are still a few openings left.

If you missed out last time, don;t miss out again!
