Students undertake an individually structured curriculum. Individual objectives for each session will be stated. Students will move to progressively more difficult and challenging assignments upon satisfactory completion of the assignments.

The study plan is based on the observation of model and cast and we guarantee excellent results for our students because drawing and painting creates a concrete and objective language. 

We provide different methodologies like sight size, comparative measures, abstract vision and more in order to improve the eficiency of the student's work.

We believe art education is fundamental to our culture.

Due to a deep understanding of the realist philosophy we are convinced that art is not just a creative movement.

We strongly believe that viewing life and humans through the realist optic can improve our society.
