The Academy of Realist Art, Boston is an art school that teaches traditional art techniques in drawing classes as well as painting classes, using a curriculum that is modeled on 19th century French academies. Students receive individualized practical instruction advancing at their own pace while working to achieve the highest levels of draftsmanship and painting skills. This intensive and focused teaching methodology has a proven record of success with students enrolling as beginners and those more advanced.

While most of our evening and weekend classes are limited to each semester, you can enroll in Atelier classes at any time. For our printable info brochure, you can download it here.
