T.E.A.D. while teaching this coursework virtually because of the current state of the world due to the current pandemic, is hoping that in the near future, the coursework will continue with a dual approach to learning, through virtual based as well as in-person, hands-on experiential learning. 


We are currently applying for a 501(c)(3) status, as a Non-Profit organization. But as with most start-up companies, all good ventures take time to build. Our team has big plans for reaching communities far and wide, and supporting that action through an NPO status will be key to further the cause. Look for more information as we progress toward this part of the venture.

If you love The Essential Art Department® concept as much as we do, support our students, and maybe one day, the best and brightest will be walking through your doors!
