Welcome to ART + Academy!
If you are looking for art classes, you’ve found it! We offer year-round drawing and painting classes for adults, teens (13-17 years old) and children (4 to 12 years old). During the Summer, we offer art camps for children from 5 to 17 years old.
Our art classes meet on a weekly basis and their duration depends on the age of the student. We have three locations in the Greater Austin TX metro area: NW Austin, Cedar Park and soon in SW Austin (September 2017).
Our philosophy is that small settings are the best way to teach art. Our small student-teacher ratio allows us to take each student from a beginner level to an intermediate or advanced level. At the same time, our small groups allow students to be inspired by others and learn how others apply the same concept they are learning into their work. As the student progresses, different media are introduced: pencil, charcoal, soft pastel, oil pastel, ink, watercolor, acrylic, collage and mixed media. The class curriculum is designed to ensure skill development, yet allow enough freedom to foster individual creativity.
We are proud to be a locally owned business since 2009.
