Adult Art Classes in Tucson, AZ

We are a mobile visual art school, maintained by professional artists. We offer adult art classes and workshops to anyone who would like to learn, create or cultivate their skills in sketching, drawing or painting within a variety of mediums, subject matter or techniques!

We are known for our professional instructors, who share their expertise, skills & knowledge both in person and online. We create a respectful supportive classroom environment, where students can make meaningful connections or develop camaraderie.

We are unique! We do not have a dedicated building, we rent spaces locally around town. This allows our small service oriented business to be mobile and helps keep our overhead costs down as our funding comes solely from our enrollments.

We also take some of our classes into the wild! We teach sketching on location, plein air and provide workshops overseas through our very own Art Verve Excursions program.

The Art Verve Academy is a concept manifested into reality by a group of independent artists and creative entrepreneurs, who are super passionate about art.

You are sure to find an experience with us that will take your skills to the next level!
