About Art Prof

Mission

Art Prof provides equal access to visual arts education on a global scale,
removing barriers that exist due to the cost of higher education & private classes.

Our site is 100% free!

Art Prof is a global online community that cares deeply about art, learning, and sharing.  I think we all know that the Internet isn’t exactly known for inspiring polite behavior among people, and yet there is now this very special place online for artists that I love and cherish: the Art Prof family. The Art Prof family is the 8 year old who did the April Art Dare, whose mother told me that art is the only thing that keeps her from feeling alone during quarantine.

The Art Prof Family is the full-time working mom who just picked up art again after a very long hiatus, the lifelong learner who always dreamed of going to art school but never did because of a chronic illness, the young artist with BIG DREAMS who told us “I’m a kid now but watch and see!”
