My daughter is thriving with real art instruction from real teachers. Her growth as an artist this year has been truly remarkable.


Parent of student

I have been blown away by the quality of art my kids bring home and their growth as artists.


Parent of students

One of my children has gone on to get her bachelor's degree in art teaching. She was definitely inspired by Susie!

About this Academy

Drawing from our imagination is how we all start our artistic journey. In this hour and a half class, we will be exploring cartooning and illustration from telling a story with stick figures to illustrating content such as children’s books, comics, and even some animation. Students will learn the value of creative thinking and imagination while learning the skills they need to master using art to get their ideas from the mind to the page.

Using pencil, pen, and color, students will demonstrate skills such as the principles of design, storytelling through art, and character and background design. Lessons on how to effectively use reference images and set up successful and expressive compositions will take place in each class, while leaving time for students to work one-on-one with the teacher on projects. Creating art from your imagination can be difficult, without the drawing skills and the guided creativity you'll receive in this class!

The Academy Program at a Glance


Do I sign a contract if accepted in to the program?

Nope. You can start and stop at any time. Our classes are ongoing year-round.

Is there an enrollment fee?

Yes. There is an enrollment fee of $40 per student that will be automatically charged (1) at the time a new student enrolls and (2) every September thereafter. 

The enrollment fee covers the costs of receiving a brand new studio t-shirt each September. It also covers the costs of classroom expenses and special studio events like open houses, art shows and contests.

How is tuition paid?

Tuition is paid through an automatic withdrawal on the 25th of every month. This automatic process is set up at the time of enrollment.

You can access the Student Portal via the Quick Links in the footer below to personally update credit card or other information as needed.


If you decide to drop a class, you must let us know before the 20th so that you are not charged for the following month. You can find a breakdown of the classes each tuition payment covers here.

What happens if I miss a class?

We do our best to help students understand what they missed so they can continue where they left off. Because our teachers are here ready to teach every class time, tuition is not reimbursed for missed classes.
