Our mission is to bring exceptional quality instruction to artists working in the classical disciplines of drawing, painting and sculpture. Our curriculum connects students to a living artistic tradition rooted in Russian, Italian and French classical Academies. Linked to an unbroken chain of training and continuing in this passage of knowledge, our institution brings rigorous training and research of the old master’s techniques together with the contemporary vision of personal expression. We are not reinventing the tradition, simply continuing one that our instructors inherited by studying at the Russian Academy of Art in St. Petersburg. Just as the Russian Academies preserved the French and Italian Schools, we extend that preservation a generation further. We provide a dynamic, collaborative, learning environment and seek to prepare emerging representational artists to become leaders in today’s increasingly complex and rapidly changing art market.
Located in the heart of historic downtown Princeton on Nassau St. Directly across the street from the University and Art Museum, Princeton Academy of Art has been a mecca for artists looking to refine their skills in contemporary realism.
