People are more important than art
Our belief is that people are more important than art. We create real and long-lasting relationships with our students and the people who support each of them. We continue to form a community that is alive with not only creativity, but also empathy.
Our belief is that everyone’s point of view is valuable. We guide, influence, and collaborate with our students during the creative process without taking over and doing it for them.
Our belief is that everyone is an artist. We simply give our students the opportunity to begin the process of cultivating their craft and saying something meaningful.
Our belief is that there are no mistakes. Each brush stroke, even if it is uneven or seems random, simply helps to form the artist’s distinctive style.
Our belief is that an artistic space should be a safe place for all students to express themselves. We strive to create an environment where people support and encourage one another, allowing all kinds of ideas to thrive.
