what we do
Frankly, no amazing art is made in a day. When artists create, the artworks reflect the aggregation of their learning, experience, research, and practice. In other words, the works are developed over time. Whether it is a skill or an idea, we cannot stress enough the importance of development and in order to fully develop a skill or an idea, one must continuously revisit them over time.
Our regular classes are offered on an ongoing basis and because of this nature, we are able to provide a more intimate learning experience. It is through these regular classes, our teachers delve deep into each student's needs and goals to customize curriculums that are specific to the development of the student’s technical and conceptual abilities.
*For any of our regular classes, your first class is always free.

The possibilities for online education are boundless and the best part about online classes is that you can join us from anywhere in the world. Online classes are focused on specific topics for a given period of time, so that learning can be concise and efficient. Each online class is carefully designed with peculiar details so that it reflects the advantages provided by its medium (being online, usually through Zoom) rather than simply placing an in-person curriculum online. Our selection of online classes is growing, so make sure to check back regularly!

Jisoo Chung is an LA-Seoul based artist working primarily through video, installation and performance. Influenced by the failure of technology such as linguistic mistranslations and cultural misinterpretations, Chung uses these failures as a blueprint to playfully subvert the occupied systems. Chung received her MFA from UCLA in Art (New Generes) and BFA from Seoul National University in the Department of Painting. In 2017, she was nominated as Artslant Prize Showcase Winner in the New Media category and in 2019, was commissioned by Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation for the New Digital Cips Project.

He is a recent Emerging Artist Grant nominee of the Rema Hort Mann Foundation and for the past 3 years, he has been working with artist Shirley Tse as the Production Director for her exhibitions at the Venice Biennale and the M+ Museum in Hong Kong.

Woohee Cho is an interdisciplinary artist working with video installation and performance. His identities and living environment merged and clashed with each other, which inspired him and gave him a deeper understanding of self-identification. Cho’s work usually stems from his personal experiences and aims to expose and queer the structural irony of patriarchal, heterosexual norms. His body, functioning as the active agent, material, and medium of his artwork, is put into discomfort and trauma within the work and serves as the playground / battleground for discourse. Cho received a BFA in Graphic Design from Seoul National University, and is an MFA from CalArts.
