Art Prof is a global online community of visual artists that cares deeply about art, learning, and sharing. We provide equal access to art education on a global scale, removing barriers that exist due to the cost of higher education, private classes, and online classes with paywalls.

Our site is 100% free!

Our tutorials provide practical, accessible techniques in drawing, digital media, painting, printmaking, 3D art, animation, and more. We produce up to date, comprehensive professional development resources for students, teachers, and independent artists. Our discussions tackle a wide range of topics: current events, mental health concerns for artists, race, gender, art history, copyright law, industry changes, plagiarism, higher education, and more.
