Learn at your own pace from anywhere

Recent years have seen an extraordinary revival in the skills and techniques of academic art, and in support of this, academically focused schools have made a concerted effort to combine modern tools with the discipline and perspective of 19th-century artists. One such school is the Academy of Realist Art (ARA) with it’s head quarters in Toronto, Canada.

Realist Art Online (RAO) has partnered with the Academy of Realist Art to democratize the instruction and teaching of academic drawing and painting and make this knowledge accessible to students everywhere.
