Sri Lanka

The Ani Art Academy Sri Lanka studios are located near the Central South Coast of Sri Lanka in the Matara District.  The six-building campus is perched above vibrant rice fields and is surrounded by lush vegetation and sprawling tea plantations. A  quiet solitude, perfectly conducive to artistic development adds a sense of scholastic serenity. Diverse wildlife compliments the surrounding grounds such as whales and rare turtles that enjoy the Indian Ocean less than two miles away.  Artists can immerse themselves in the peaceful seclusion while enjoying access to all that Sri Lanka has to offer. 

With two studios nestled into the endless rolling hills, the Ani Sri Lanka studios are both beautiful and efficient.  Designed by the award-winning Reda Amalou of AW2 Architecture, the studio was built using a combination of locally sourced products and the newest building technologies, which save energy and maintain an environment ideal for the artistic materials.  The five-acre campus is designed to melt into the surrounding jungle.  Customizable lighting, ample work spaces, and state of the art workstations empower Ani Art Academy Sri Lanka apprentices with all the tools and comforts of a remarkable campus.
