The Cost of the Wrong Teacher

A proper education will not only teach you the necessary skills but also include how to choose materials and help you work with the very best of brushes and paint.

The Cost of Learning from your Peers

And mastering technical skills, which is vital to success as an artist, has nothing to do with opinion.

Studios and ateliers that teach technical foundations may be a better investment of both time and money compared to an art school.

Evolve student Sanna K. shows how technical training, even when keeping things simple, can create beautiful works of art.

Choosing the Right Place to Learn

Evolve was created for serious students to study without the financial constraints and opinionated education of a traditional art school.
