ART PROF is a free, online educational platform for visual arts.
Learn visual arts in a vibrant community for people of all ages.
Visual artist and RISD Adjunct Professor Clara Lieu has partnered with Thomas Lerra from WGBH Boston and a team of 6 Teaching Assistants and 10 Interns to create a free, online educational platform for the visual arts.
In most schools, visual arts education is meager or simply does not exist. Outside art programs are not affordable for most people, and are primarily isolated to higher education institutions. ART PROF provides the chance for a global community to access to a high quality visual arts education for free. People of all ages can learn visual arts at their own pace through ART PROF.
Now we need help from YOU to make ART PROF free for all.
