About The Art School Deliquents

The prestigious Hopper School of Visual and Performing Arts is home to an eclectic group of friends and their dirty secrets. Behind the curtain and canvas, the rebellious college seniors push the limits of experimentation in any and every way they can: Drug-fueled fantasies. Sketchy nightclub encounters. Late-night graffiti bombing. They’re the adrenaline junkies your parents were terrified of.
There’s Freddie, the suave trust fund baby gone drama kid bad boy, and Victoria, his equally privileged girlfriend with a keen nose for powders and pills; Tyler, the garage band drummer from the bad part of town turned financial aid music aficionado; Mark, his misfit dorm mate, painter by day, vandal by night; Amanda, the gifted dancer on a full-tuition scholarship with a well-kept secret; and Jo, her introverted photography major roomie and with a soft spot for voyeurism. How bad can it all be, right?

On the first night of senior year, Victoria welcomes the gang back to Hopper School of Visual and Performing Arts in her customary way — with an assortment of colorful love pills: one for Freddie, one for Amanda, one for Tyler, one for Jo, one for Mark, and one for her. Within half an hour, they become enveloped in a cloud of collective empathy and multisensory bliss. But what they hoped would be a night of deep conversation turns to one of unexpected intimacy and lust.
