Founded in 1923, The American Academy of Art has been educating professional artists in the fine art and commercial art fields for 96 years, educating thousands of professional artists, many of whom have had extremely successful careers.
When Frank Young, Sr., an internationally recognized authority in advertising design, founded the Academy, he believed the institution should “provide the best instructors, attract the best students, and neglect nothing that will help them to build successful careers.” It is upon this early conviction that the Academy continues to bring relevant programs of study that can lead students to their goal of a career in art.
We are proud of the success of our graduates. Many of the Academy’s alumni have established themselves in leadership positions in their fields. In the years that our students are with us, we make every effort to equip them for rewarding careers where they can have a positive impact on their culture and community.
Your unrestrictive, tax-deductible gift to the Annual Giving Fund will help to empower students to complete their education and take their place in the art community. Through your help we can sustain up-to-date programs, support entrepreneurship and technology coupled with a talented and qualified faculty that will ensure graduates of a place in the art world.
