Our Process.

This undertaking will first begin with two parts. First art enrichment through skill based programs. These programs will be focused but not limited to individuals between the ages of twelve to adult. The programs will cater to basic art fundamentals such as drawing, painting and other genre related topics. Within these mini classes, we are cultivating the individual’s confidence as well as encouraging creative thought. The second part of the initial business is service oriented.

We will cater to the public in the development of visual designs and illustration. This type of service is not uncommon within the community; however with the first part of our structure we will introduce the “students” that have the will and the talent to the business oriented factor of the professional artistic world. With this real world interaction with graphic design, T-shirt design, illustration, business logo, letter head our customers will have a true advantage in the community.

Our Vision

Combining the two aspects of “art enrichment” and “community service” will develop a complete package of enlightened individuals. They will be opened to a possible future or a redirection of their goals.

Our Mission

Our mission is to take untapped, skilled and talented individuals and nurture them upwards and onwards towards professionalism.
