SPRING SEMESTER BEGINS
THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 3rd, 2019
The Da Vinci Initiative (DVI) now runs classes and workshops out of our new permanent location in Jersey City, New Jersey in partnership with New Jersey City University.
DVI offers training in an "apprenticeship" system with a subscription enrollment policy. Students pay a monthly fee and are welcome to attend the studio hours of their choosing, with critiques available from an atelier-trained artist on Tuesdays and Thursdays. One weekend workshop each month is also included for all enrolled participants. All enrollment starting in September of 2019 will be through New Jersey City University's continuing education program.
Participants can opt into or out of the program at their discretion. If space is available, high school students will be considered for enrollment with the recommendation of an art teacher. Enroll through New Jersey City University's PELL program today!
The set monthly fee is $720/month to enroll in our apprenticeship program.
