2019 Class List Released!


At School of the Alternative, our curriculum each year is determined by the radical individuals who apply, and the skills, experience, and ideas that they hope to share. We are really excited about the wild range of classes that we are able to offer this year! 

This means that now is the time to choose which week(s) you'd like to join us this year, and get those applications in! As a student at SotA, you will not only be a part of an engaging, community-minded group of folks (like you!), you will also have the chance to both take classes and teach pop-up classes if you would like! The traditional student/teacher hierarchy is dissolved here at SotA, and we hope this non-traditional structure is just another great reason for you to apply this year!

Deadlines are coming up! 



"SotA is the stuff of dreams! As someone who is not a trained visual artist or steeped in academia, it was incredibly freeing to be given the latitude to create, teach, explore, and just exist in such an incredibly nurturing environment. I feel reborn (no hyperbole here!) and propelled forward by oodles of love and acceptance. What a gift to have existed amongst such beauty and kindness."

*we will accept applications after 3/1 until all spots are filled, but we do encourage getting your application in by the 3/1 deadline for the best chance of joining us this May!
