The Academy of Realist Art has launched its first annual scholarship competition for promising artists with a love for academic style painting and drawing.
ARA is one of a select few art schools in the world that teaches the academic approach to figure drawing and painting. We model our curriculum and classical techniques on those used by 19th-century European academies to help students master fine art skills.
There will be two first prizes awarded for one year's free tuition (valued at $7620 Canadian) for our full-time program: One at ARA Toronto and one at ARA Boston.
Second prize is a two-week workshop of their choosing.
Third prize is a one-week workshop of their choosing (ARA Toronto only).
Applicants must be 18 years of age or older. Deadline for submission is September 30, 2012. Winners will be announced November, 2012.
This annual Scholarship Fund was established in memory of Elise Hunter Stevenson, an ARA student and dedicated art lover.
Submissions shall be treated as being free of restrictions and limitations on their use and publication.
Individuals must specify the scholarship location they wish to attend if they are awarded a first prize.
Prizes have no cash surrender value and are not transferrable. Any expenses incurred by the winner(s) to claim the scholarship award(s) are the sole responsibility of the individual.
