Visual Arts Passage is providing free enrollment to our Guest Speaker Series for the Summer and Fall 2023 terms to any artists who were attending or instructing at The Art Institutes during its sudden closure.
We are saddened to hear so many artists and educators have been left adrift by the sudden closure of The Art Institutes. Going to an art school is a major commitment and life choice, and we can only imagine the frustration and uncertainty students must be experiencing.
Our founders frequently speak out against schools that put dollars before learning, something we feel has overrun higher education. We believe many of these institutions prioritize profit margins before considering the best interest of the student.
This is why we have chosen to provide free enrollment to our Guest Speaker Series for the Summer and Fall 2023 to any student or educator who was attending The Art Institutes during this sudden closure. We understand this is small offer, considering the gravity of the situation.
We hope this allows some students to continue to learn and join a community of artists during a difficult transitional chapter of their art career.
