That’s because once you sign on with us, we make sure you’re thoroughly trained and supported. We’ll teach you how to find and sign new clients, locate and train instructors, and manage your bookkeeping. We don’t stop there. We’ll also help you select and prepare your site for your grand opening and will share our proprietary software with you that will simplify the way you track client information and billing. Throughout it all, you’ll come to understand how our core philosophy drives our brand, and if there’s ever a question or a problem, you can rest easy knowing we’re just a phone call away! It’s all part of our commitment to our franchisees and to our goal of providing a top-notch art education to as many young people as possible.

Love What You Do

Our franchisees get to spend each workday surrounded by art. It’s that simple and that wonderful. More than that, they get to share their love of artistic expression with students who are ready to celebrate creativity, in themselves and in others, as they develop new friendships and new art skills along the way. Starting an art school with One River is truly your chance to lead a purpose-driven professional life, one that adds real value to the community you serve. And with our proven business model, innovative proprietary curriculum, and our strong and unique brand identity, you can finally put an end to dreaming about a more rewarding career and start actually doing the work you love.
