Virtual Art Academy

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.”

Questions To Ask When Choosing Online Painting Classes

Two key questions to ask when choosing an online painting class are:

  • have they had group exhibitions with other professional artists as well as solo exhibitions|?
