Our art programs have been developed to cater for students of all ages (over 4) and abilities.
All teachers at Art One Academy are experienced professional artists or educators with minimum of BA in Fine Arts.
We make sure that young children´s introduction to art is interesting and informative. Our children´s program covers the theory of color, drawing and sculpture. Kids are encouraged to develop their artistic talent while being given a solid foundation for their future artistic endeavors.
Our teachers are able to provide invaluable assistance for higher level students who are in the process of preparing their portfolios. We understand that a unique and interesting portfolio is vital for admittance to prestigious art schools, colleges and universities and we are happy to support our students through this process.
The class size at Art One Academy is between four to eight students per teacher depending on age. This means that students will always receive individual attention, and that their progress and artistic development is closely monitored by staff. We also encourage high school students with an art major to work as teacher assistants in order to provide an even greater level of attention to younger students
Our students regularly participate in art exhibitions. They receive encouraging feedback and rewards for art work that they exhibit.
Our students have reported experiencing additional benefits in other areas of their lives not necessarily related to art. These include improved concentration and results in other school subjects, a rise in personal confidence and presentation skills, and a new appreciation of history.
There is an extensive range of career options available for people who choose art as a profession. At the Art One Academy we assist our students in developing the skills required to realize their ambitions.
