About Us

Our Mission

“I created the Virtual Art Academy in order to make a structured academy-caliber art education available to everyone. Even if they don’t earn much money. In this way I can give students everywhere the same opportunity I had to learn to paint at a high level.”

Tip #1: When you are investing in your art education, make sure you check out the artwork of the person who is making the lessons.

Tip #2: Also find out: Has the author of the course exhibited their work in museums? Are they a member of any prestigious Art Associations? Have they participated in several group exhibitions with other professional artists?
