The Arcanum

Arcanum-blueThe Arcanum is brought to us by Trey Ratcliff of Stuck in Customs and Stuck on Earth fame. It uses the traditional master and apprentice approach to learning creative arts, but adds a twist. No longer do a master and his apprentices have to be together in the same place; The Arcanum uses technology to facilitate interaction between a master and his apprentices wherever they may be on the globe. Visit The Arcanum and view the video preview then read the rest if you’re interested. Once you’ve viewed the video you might have some questions, like Do I need Google Glass? or How much does it cost for me as an Apprentice?, and you can find answers to these and other questions in the Frequently Asked Questions.
