The Masters Academy of Art, ARC ApprovedSM Atelier, is holding a Kickstarter campaign to help fund expansion of the school and the artistic community, as well as provide greater educational opportunities for art students.
Mission Statement: The ultimate goal of The Masters Academy of Art is to provide artists with an education that allows them to pursue and produce art that serves the public, elevates society and reestablishes the standards of art as a visual language that can be understood and felt beyond any boundaries. It is our belief that craft precedes artistry, knowledge precedes inspiration, observation precedes invention and a process-based art always yields a higher standard of work.
The Masters Academy of Art Full Time Program:
The full-time program at the Masters Academy is designed to prepare students for a professional career as fine artists. The instructors at the Masters Academy are all accomplished working professionals passionate about helping aspiring artists in their efforts to achieve their goals.
All full-time students start in the drawing program, which helps them develop proficiency by copying masterwork drawings and casts. After acquiring an understanding of drawing fundamentals, students will enter our painting program where they will continue working from casts, then move on to still life and portraiture. Throughout the program, students will also be working from a live model every day. Full-time students have 24-hour access to the studios and are asked to spend at least 6-8 hours per day working in the studio.
Students work at their own pace, though they should plan on 4-5 years to complete the entire program. Semesters are 15 weeks long.
