AST provides online workshops and master classes for artists that integrate philosophy, science, and aesthetics. Each of our events explores a core character attribute, such as happiness, wisdom, courage, humanity, justice, and temperance. We investigate leading philosophical and scientific understandings of these virtues and mentor artists as they wrestle with rich, enduring questions in the pursuits of bettering themselves and expanding their capacity to make impactful art. Our workshops are held online via Zoom, allowing you to see and talk with us, our guests, and other participants from anywhere in the world. If you’re involved in an arts-related field and want to engage with passionate, insightful speakers and guest artists, you’ve come to the right place!
