He went to school at Cleveland Institute of Art. Marc majored in painting. He also loved doing photography, textiles, and graphic design.

When he asked his mom and dad if he could go to school for art they said no. They wanted him to go to school for a practical subject. If Marc Brown wanted to go to school for art his parents would not pay for it. For presents his parents and family would buy him pens, paper, and pencils.
