One River Art school franchise

One River School of Art and Design has become the most innovative new art franchise opportunity in America.

We built a proprietary approach for teaching art and design on top of a highly profitable business model.

And, you don’t have to be an art expert to do this!  

This is a ground-floor opportunity to make money, change your career and enhance the culture in your community.
That’s a compelling and powerful combination.

One River created a new method for teaching art and design classes and and installed it on top of a proprietary business process.

Our proven methods and thoughtful hands on training teach you how to market your business and grow / retain a motivated student base for your Art School Franchise.

One River has become the most exciting place to work in the arts and this allows us to hire the most committed and brightest people to help build our schools and our platform. We produce exciting art exhibitions that make us the most compelling cultural business in the community. Our model is truly unique and is tapping into a huge void.
