Create Art Like the Old Masters
From graphite and charcoal to oil painting and sculpture, we teach a curriculum based on techniques from the Old Masters for creating depth, distance, atmosphere, solid form, and convincing surface textures. The REAL Academy of Art Colorado is hands-on and interdisciplinary, teaching artists to look for the connections between art and the world around them using visual skills, information synthesis, and procedural fluency to ultimately create a robust portfolio of successful artwork.
Our class size is kept small to maintain a good learner to instructor ratio that ensures highly personalized guidance
Our program requires no previous artistic experience, just a dedication to learning and a love for art
More than Just a Hobby
We also offer art career counseling and various workshops on the business of art for those wanting to pursue art professionally.

We teach visual literacy inspired by the Old Masters, hand-eye skills, and an appreciation for art—culturally, historically, and personally. Our curriculum and faculty challenge our artists to think conceptually as they grow and refine their voices.
