What we're about

The Art Verve Academy sponsors Meetups, which are free and open to the public to facilitate social learning, a great way to develop or hone your skills! Practice any 2D Visual Art medium with other enthusiasts. Beginners to advanced are welcome! Find encouragement, support, or inspiration as you exchange ideas, tips, new tools, or techniques with other like minded folks. Work in any 2D medium of your choice or bring any previously completed work to share with us.

The Art Verve Academy is a mobile Visual Arts school. We proudly offer art classes in a group setting face to face with quality instruction in sketching, art journaling, drawing, mixed media or painting within a variety of mediums, subject matter or visual art techniques. Adults, ages 16 and up (or accompanied by a guardian) are welcome to enroll. Visit us at ArtVerveAcademy.com.
