Who we are, and what we do

Our Philosophy

We believe in the individual. Because we are convinced that learning shouldn’t be limited by arbitrary guidelines or rules, we work with students of all ages and abilities to help them realize their potential. Whoever you are, wherever you are, you fit right in to our community and our vision. We want to take the limits off learning. 

What We Do

Through livestream classes, students can study game design, art, 3D modeling, programming, and more. Our curriculum encourages students to pursue their own interests at their own pace, building flexibility, individuality, and accessibility into the very fabric of our programs.
