Where creative apps meet artistic people

Located in Silicon Valley - California, our goal is to empower users from toddlers to seniors, artists to scientists, and everyone in between, to explore the world of digital art using their mobile devices.

Art is fun. It opens the door to new universes. Using your mobile device to create art not only gives you a portable canvas and sketch book, it’s free of mess and the apps cost less than a cup of good coffee.

We provide online and live instructional seminars and workshops, one-on-one instruction and mobile art instruction classes that span the gamut of artistic ability, from the beginning artists taking their first steps, to experienced creators who want to explore the universe of digital art.

Our instructors are master mobile artists with a passion for empowering others to experience the joy of creating art on their mobile device.
