If you want to learn something, really learn it, go find the very best person in the world and copy what they do. If you copy it over and over again, you put your own spin on it and you're off in a new direction.

The Academy embraces several art disciplines where students, working directly with professional artists, are guided and encouraged to develop their unique gifts and talents. We provide opportunities in art classes, workshops, and art lectures for the novice through the professional to benefit from study, apprenticeship, exhibition and performance, and to promote the arts in the best classical tradition for enjoyment and inspiration.
