Alisa Snell:

Sarah Abagulum’s art classes are the highlight of my daughter’s week. She feels successful and confident in her art and I love that she is learning foundational art principles while having fun.



My daughter has been coming to lessons for over two years. She has learned so much and has gotten experience in multiple art mediums. She loves coming to art class!


Megan Jones:

We have absolutely loved attending the Ninth Muse Academy! The classes are small so the students get the attention to excel in their art skills! The progress we have seen our child make is outstanding & we can tell she is learning valuable skills! We love Sarah & her energy! She has so much patience with each student. The students adore & respect Sarah!

who we are

Have you ever dreamed of having the skills to create that piece of artwork you've always dreamed of?
Ninth Muse Academy of Art was formed to create a community to teach and inspires all artists - from the novice to the professional.
Our goal is to provide an environment that will nurture every student and encourage each individual’s unique artistic talent.
Ninth Muse Academy of Art breaks down art just like your math teacher breaks down equations.
Each component is made simple so the most complicated concepts can be achieved.

Where you start:
Drawing isn't about talent. It's about really seeing what is there and learning techniques to capture it. Painting is just drawing with paint.
What you will need:
A willingness to try new things, make mistakes, and have fun. We will provide everything for the first class. After that we will discuss any supplies needed.
Where you will end up:
Frustration will melt away as your creativity becomes reality. You will be able to create what you intended and painting will become enjoyable and relaxing.

the Studio Director- Sarah Abagulum studied and taught at Mission: Renaissance Fine Art Class in California- the biggest art institution in the world. She trained in the Gluck Method and has brought her passion and experience to Ogden, her hometown.



What makes your school different from other art classes?
