Artistic Profile:
Prime Vice Studios has been providing creative services since 2017 launching from Atlanta and expanding internationally. PVS delivers joy-filled creative experiences that inspire people of all ages to be innovative creators. Our mission to empower others through owning their narratives is fulfilled through teaching, being a model of our own philosophy by publishing our own productions, and by working with compatible clients.  All PVS classes, workshops, and residencies aim to develop interesting stories with original characters that can be shared through graphic storytelling.

PVS utilizes the medium of sequential art (comic creation) to facilitate its workshops. Students learn how to combine words and pictures to tell stories that can be informative, entertaining and/ or educational. Our creator workshops have applications that are easily compatible with almost all subjects. Our curriculums can be scaled and modified to work with any school, educator or community need.
