The American Academy of Art
The American Academy of Art is a school built on a tradition of professionalism and excellence. We are a thriving creative community of skilled faculty, dedicated staff and talented students. Our faculty and staff have come together collaboratively working toward a common goal: equipping our students to be leaders in the art world.
We believe in the importance of forming a foundation in the classical academic tradition. The early coursework for our students focuses on developing essential skills not only in art technique, but also in the humanities and sciences. From this foundation, we encourage the development of creative and critical thinking that will allow students to use their foundational skills to communicate their own unique artistic ideals.
Our faculty and staff represent a diversity of cultures and artistic styles that we hope will inspire our students to broaden their minds and their artistic range during their years at the Academy and beyond. We encourage our students to consider the impact that they can have on their culture and society through their work.
Since our founding in 1923, our programs have evolved with contemporary artistic styles and technological advances, but the same vision of artistic excellence that inspired our founder remains. Our halls are lined with the works of many of our successful alumni, and each year that legacy grows as our graduates find rewarding careers in the art field and take their place as leaders.
