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 Saturday workshop each month is also included for all enrolled participants.
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.
The set monthly fee is $600/month to enroll in our apprenticeship program.
***Please note that March and January will be a partial months due to Spring Break and cost $300.***
Monday - Thursday from 4-6pm
Critique days are Tuesday and Thursday.
There are no classes on federal holidays.
There are no classes June-August due to the Summer Teacher Atelier. Art teachers in our regular classes are encouraged to enroll in the Summer Teacher Atelier program.
Workshops will be held on one Saturday every month. Read workshop descriptions here.
