Join us for group virtual learning and we will give you step-by-step guidance and personalized critiques to help you with program assignments or personal projects. We are proud of all the work being done around the world through these classes!

For students new to ARA, we recommend starting by copying the Bargue plates, just like the students in our regular program. This is the visual alphabet that all artists should know. If you are looking to raise your understanding of form, values, shapes, edges and lighting, copying the Bargue drawings are a great way to start.

Our virtual open studio instructors will use lots of video demonstrations and group and individual critiques through Zoom video conferencing.

All levels of skill are welcome.

This weekly class will run on Saturday afternoons via Zoom video conferencing from 1-3 PM ET.

Virtual open studio price is $150/month, paid in full up front. Students who wish to add a second weekly session can do so for an extra $50/month – please email Colleen at info@academyofrealistart.com to make arrangements.
