Classes
Wait. So where are the classes??

The last couple years have shown us that education is changing.

What a great time to be a neighborhood art school.

Below we have brought together some of the new and old ways that art education is happening.

Each picture has a button and connects to a website or a youtube video that gives a little background into each idea. What speaks to you? What can you see yourself doing?

We want to start from where you feel excited to share with your neighbors and from there, build an information structure that will connect us to each other.

 

We want to do this with all our neighbors who are interested in the arts: from the babies to the elders. Imagine being able to walk to a class that spurs your creativity at each stage of your creative life.

What does a neighborhood art school look like? It's like Nextdoor.com for the arts. It looks like an in-person and online network of people teaching, learning, and making art in our neighborhood. 

 

You can help create this network by taking a quick glance over this page and then filling out the NAS survey. Your answers will help all of us know how we can better invest in each other's creativity.
