Learning to hone your skills as an artist takes dedication and years of practice. To support you along the way, educational institutions are often a great option to learn from experienced instructors, build a portfolio and make connections. With new School accounts coming to ArtStation, you can browse the Schools Directory to find what’s right for you and connect with schools and other students.

To welcome Schools to ArtStation, tune in for the online Open House on June 8 and learn about the hundreds of art programs available at educational institutions globally. During the event, several schools will be holding Q&As and publishing helpful articles on their blogs to help you in your journey.

See the full list of activities for the Open House below.
