At Arties we believe real learning occurs through hands on experience. For this reason, Arties Fall Sessions are designed to do just that. We don't have instructors; we have Mentors. Mentors who are real professionals with years of experience and passion for what they do.  Our Mentors are people who want to give back and be the help and inspiration to your child that they didn't have growing up. We want kids who are passionate about the things they love and are actively seeking opportunities to 'go to that next level'. Arties is that next level that will take your child from wanting to learn to wanting to learn more. Our Fall Sessions are an experience your child will never forget and will build them up as they create something new and original that any parent would be proud of. 

Arties Fall Sessions are once a week sessions that run though out the Fall in a cool, relaxed environment that will allow the Mentor and student the freedom to decide what they will learn about and explore each week. Our goal is to always produce something awesome, whether that is something physical like a painting, photograph, our your very own comic book, or a performance of improve, comedy or a concert, we believe true learning occurs through the journey of going from nothing to something. So take a journey with us this Fall and do something incredible!

ADULT LEARNING WITH NERDIES & ARTIES

As a subsidiary of Nerdies, Arties was specifically designed to concentrate on the creative side of life and the incredible people who inhabit that space. We felt like there needed to be a brand, an identity, and focus specifically geared toward this unique population and out of that came Arties. 

Arties is built for the artist that is ready to do and in doing wanting to learn and do more. We focus on outcome based learning by simply doing it. Movies don't get made by talking about them. Music isn't made by talking. Bands aren't created, comic books aren't written, inspiring photography isn't taken, by talking. At Arties, we do all of this and more.

The project based sessions are student driven and ultimately lead to the culmination of that project in whatever form it takes. Arties mentors are there not as teachers, but as true mentors helping grow interest and turn student's passions into reality. 

Along with Founder and Head Nerd in Charge, Brad Harvey, local Artie Troy Gittings set out to form a place specifically for all of the amazing, creative Aries out there. "We felt like we needed to create a brand that specifically focuses on this group of people. So many artists have shared their struggles about growing up and trying to find a place where they could be themselves, practice their passion and grow into who they truly are. My parents gave me a name, but through poetry and music, I got to decide who I am. That's what Arties means to me." says Gittings.
