Franchise Opportunities Available Across the US

One River is built to be the most fun place to teach art. A school that doesn’t feel like “school”. A place where our students love to spend time and tap into their creative potential. An opportunity for artists to have a great job. As One River School of Art + Design grows from coast to coast, we are on the frontier of transforming art education.

One River started in 2011 when Founder Matt Ross, after years as the executive building School of Rock into the largest music educator in America, rejected the state of visual art education. His research showed that art education is broken, with limited art centers and diminishing programs in schools.
