Our Goals

Our central passion is creating our own artwork, but we recognize the effort of weaving art and beauty into culture is larger than any single artist or group, so we need to get as many hands, hearts and minds involved as possible.  In order to produce the amount of high quality content we are dreaming of, we have recruited an independent filmmaker, Joe Hawkins, to lead our video production.

Our video content guides you through the myriad of factors that shape an artist, not just the important technical aspects of understanding color harmony, value and form, or the illusion of creating space within the canvas, but also things like poetry, philosophy, and art criticism.
