Atelier of Fine Art is devoted to the classical education of realism through oil paintings and charcoal drafting. We specialize in the placement of gifted High School graduates applying into art colleges, specialized art schools, and Universities since 2012 with great success.  AOFA caters to all ages from 14 through 97. We feel it is a responsibility to infuse classical skills sets into our society. Our setting is soft lit a classically designed school with a touch of home. All students are supplied with water, baked goods and coffee for an at home comfortable feel. Easels and benches are circled around the model stage. The counters have marble tops to accomodate still life paintings. AOFA has a model stand with lighting also for specialized photography of paintings. The website is being remodeled but most info is in place for the school. We have an art store right next to us and framing on the other side, which is ideal. Atelier of Fine Art is located on the edge of NoHo and Studio City where all the arts are thriving. We are surrounded by the music industry, theater, movie productions and the arts. Many new realist galleries are emerging in Pasedena and downtown LA 30 minutes away, such as Corey Helford Gallery and Arcadia Contemporary. Some of the most incrediable artists emerged from this area such as Jeremy Lipking, Julio Reyes, Morgan Weistling, myself and many many others who have helped bring mastery back into the fold.

Julia Diller

Owner Operator

Julia Diller, first art showing 12 years of age in Cincinnati Ohio. From there all elementry school, Jr. High and High School were centered around the arts. After High school it was impossible to find a school in the United States that taught classical realism which I highly desired, so it was not until 1996 when I completed basic classical drawing skills at LAVC when I was introduced to my first Atelier in the LA area. I was then able to get 4 years of full time studies under the tultelage of a master. From Charcoal to Oil figurative studies, still life, and special effects from Disney and Dream Works Masters (Also fine artists) . From there representation in Scottsdale,LA, and South Carolina; Charleston represention. From that point on Atelier Of Fine Art has been a labor of love and a commitment to passing on the neccesary skills it takes to become a master draftsman and painter with the highest possible skill levels in oil painting and drafting.
