Learn about the school and get to know your art teachers
The Art Academy is founded to help both new and professional artists to become skilled in not just their main profession, but also to be better at thinking and developing their art using any tool.
We believe that if you are to become a influential artist you must not only develop your skill, but also yourself, because only through self-transformation can you truely achieve what you want.
And what better way to be taught be a range of people who both love to show you how they make their magic and have many years of working experience. Most are still very much active and have their own clients. This we believe will help make the teaching stay fresh, as new content and knowledge keeps pouring in.
