Mission

Art Prof provides a unique opportunity for a global community to have equal access to a free visual arts education.   We are removing barriers to art education that exist due to the high-cost of higher education & private classes,  while providing easy-to-follow content for people of all ages and means.

Donate to keep Art Prof free for all!

The majority of our staff work on a volunteer basis, and we currently operate on a shoe string budget.
We are always pursuing funding, but it’s your donations that help us grow the fastest!
