PROGRAM CURRICULUM

Grind Before Glory is designed to be an 18-month program. Good solid foundational skills are not built overnight, and single classes or workshops won’t be able to provide the comprehensive education and mentorship that this whole program offers. An 18-month program designed to jumpstart your journey towards becoming a professional artist may seem like a long time, but you have to remember: this is a marathon and not a sprint.
