Welcome to Academy of Realist Art Ottawa

A visit to any of the Academy of Realist Art's (ARA) studios in Toronto, Ottawa, Boston or Edinburgh is an experience not soon forgotten. ARA provides a learning environment that most artists have never seen or experienced. In place of secrecy and mystery, ARA provides clear explanations of techniques and supportive teachers and students.

The completed art works and exercises and the large amount of work in progress on display in the studios demonstrates, beyond doubt that advanced drawing and painting skills can be taught and learned.

Many people have commented that ARA students produce the best results of all the other ateliers. The quality of instruction ( some say it's the PhD of art programs ) really speaks for itself and the ARA curriculum truly is the starting point for a whole new generation of masters.

Skills acquired in the ARA program are genuinely life-changing; you will change the way you approach problems and the techniques you use as a result of these new skills. Now this world-class program is available in Ottawa!
