Welcome to SVP Online Atelier

Join a New School of Thought

What is the Online Atelier?

The School of Visual Philosophy is dedicated to helping artists achieve their professional goals by acknowledging traditional skill-based practices while incorporating contemporary technology into multiple ways of learning. 

Are you an emerging or professional artist looking to Level Up?
Do you want to make a living doing what you love?

As artists we often work alone in our studios, creating and pouring out our ideas, emotions and feelings. It can be hard to connect with other artists, let alone our audience and customers. We believe:

  • Artists are small business entrepreneurs
  • Getting feedback is an important part of the creation process
  • You are NOT alone on your artistic journey

 Our Mission: 

The School of Visual Philosophy's Online Atelier was founded to provide artists with a better way to learn and grow their professional practices. Our community is built on mutual respect for all types of creators, as well as a strong desire to change the way artists are viewed in society.

Joining the School of Visual Philosophy's Online Atelier is the perfect way to grow your professional artistic career. Our courses cover topics from skill building in a variety of media like forging and printmaking, sculpting and painting to professional development like Crafting your Perfect Artist Statement. No matter where you are on your artistic journey, we have a place for you!

Who We Are

We are a community of artists, educators and entrepreneurs who are changing the way artists are viewed by themselves and society. 

 Meet your Hosts: 

Hi I'm Yori Seeger!

I have over 20 years of experience in metal casting, blacksmithing, and sculpting. I am a craftsman at heart and believe that art is a language that can be spoken visually. I use art and craft in tandem to improve and challenge my work. I invite you to join me on this journey as we hone our skills together.

Hi I'm Dana Harris Seeger!

I am a native Californian, tied to my Baltic roots in symbols, sight, sound and spirit; making art and advocating for art education in the heart of Silicon Valley. I co-created the School of Visual Philosophy with my husband, Yori in 2013. I really enjoy merging fine art with technology in my artwork, business and teaching.

Hi I'm Keith Rogers Gordon!

After years of working as a fiction editor, my wake-up call came when I realized that there were thousands of aspiring authors looking to share their stories with the world, but for one reason or another, they lacked the confidence and the courage to make the leap. I love to inspire authors to tell their kick-ass stories.
