Repin Academic Institute of Fine Arts

Repin Academic Institute of Fine Arts

The “gold standard” of artistic expression

It’s an amazing story about Repin Academic Institute of Fine Arts (former Saint Petersburg Imperial Academy of Arts). It was founded in the 18th century and back then French, Italian and German teachers were coming there to teach art. Foreigners don’t teach in this Academy anymore, they study instead.

Few places in the world still teach fine arts the old way, where form is everything…

Thank you! Big thanks to all Drawing Academy Art Competition participants and supporters. We are delighted to announce the Winners: Ronnie Rayner Larter http://drawingacademy.com/my-sisters-gardening-boots “My interest in art began in my last year at school in the mid 1960’s. When I left school I continued to draw and paint, experimenting with many different media from pencil, ink, pastels, and paint… The Drawing Academy is an excellent place to learn about how the master’s draw and paint using techniques that are rarely taught in art school today.” A.R. http://drawingacademy.com/drawing-by-a-r “I love drawing very much. I’m drawing when I have free time in my notebooks and everywhere I can. I want to bring my drawing skills on a new level.

My Testimony and Thanks to the Drawing Academy

My Testimony and Thanks to the Drawing Academy

Feedback from James McCreary, Drawing Academy student

I signed up for the Drawing Academy about 2 weeks ago I guess. I started drawing about 6 months ago and it was about then or a little bit later I ran across the video by Vladimir London – the 12 Most Essential Skills Every Artist Must Have. Then a bit later I watched the 12 Drawing Mistakes to Avoid.

Pablo Ochoa CarpinteyroAs promised in the Drawing Academy Survey, we awarded the full Academy Membership to one of our contributors.

Pablo Ochoa

Here is what Pablo says:

My name is Pablo Ochoa, I am from Puebla, Mexico.

Since I was a child the drawing came first, I loved to draw in my notebooks. As I grew, critiques of my art made me feel like if I wasn’t good at it. So I quit drawing, and began practicing music.

After 8 years of abstinence of making drawings, I really wanted to draw again. One of my teachers in the class of Musical appreciation said: “When you study art, music, painting, dance, acting, you must not get married to the art you are doing, you must enroll in other arts because in that way, you can learn so many new things to complement your studies and become a better artist.” …
