The Academy of Realist Art is one of a rare group of North American academies dedicated to teaching classical art training using the techniques of the 19th century ateliers. Founded in Toronto in 1997, ARA draws students from around the world; many of whom have gone on to become international award-winning artists, illustrators and/or film and digital media professionals.
This will be a unique opportunity for the public to step inside our normally private studios. There you will have a chance to:
• See the high calibre of work being done by our local and international students
• Meet the new generation of rising stars in the realist art community
• Discover affordable original artwork to add to your collection
• Learn the essentials of classical art training and how that can translate into success in a modern day world
* Street and lot parking are available at Dundas St. W. and Pacific Avenue. There is an elevator to the second floor.
Hope to see everyone there!
