The ÀNI Art Academies welcome applications from all those who are dedicated to the pursuit of Representational drawing and painting. Our Program is an intensive, full-time course of study. Accepted apprentices are required to commit to 35 working easel hours per week in order to maintain full-time status.  Entrance to this highly sought after program is primarily based on an artist’s level of commitment.  We believe that great artists are not born – they are educated.  Therefore, ÀNI Art Academies requires no previous artistic experience and instead seeks out individuals that are dedicated to the learning process and the completion of training. 

All Applicants must be at least 18 years of age, have citizenship in the region of the Academy, and have a high-school diploma or equivalent. Applications are reviewed 4 times a year (January, April, July, and October). Each Applicant will be contacted via email at the time of application review to schedule an initial phone interview and studio visit. Do not send any original artwork with your application. Please note that no application materials submitted to the ÀNI Art Academies will be returned.

**Please see Academy Head Instructor for weekly studio schedule.

Full Merit Scholarships and financial aid for the Program are available for all students, enabling them to focus on their education. The last week of each Quarter is for Performance Assessment Reviews (PARS). PARS is a comprehensive analysis of a student’s performance within the program. ÀNI Art Academies Apprentices must maintain satisfactory reviews in order to maintain their Scholarship status.
