    Quote from the homepage, though I guess it's kind of evident(not sure if this word actually means what I think it does but, stay there, word) this is the point of them.

    Quote Originally Posted by The Ashland Academy of Art
    The Ashland Academy of Art is a classically based, independent school, committed to the restoration of the fundamental values of art. The Academy’s program is modeled after the Russian academic system. This system was founded on the artistic achievements of the Renaissance, which were widely practiced in European Academies until the end of the 19th century.

    With the onslaught of 20th century Modernism, this rich classical tradition was abandoned by Western art institutions and educators. During this time the Russian Academy became the only educational system dedicated to the preservation and advancement of the artistic heritage of the Renaissance.

    Our mission is to provide aspiring artists the training that has been denied by contemporary art education. The Academy’s extensive curriculum was designed to give students a mastery of drawing and painting, making it one of the few such schools worldwide.

    Thanks for posting, always nice to look at such work and studies

    Does your school offer a series of instructional DVDS for serious art students as myself who are not able to move to Ashland to study at the school.

    I've noticed students from Ashland academy are better colorist than students from other Ateliers. Is that more from Russian academic training or is it just the instructors at the school?

    Really impressive! That old classical feel is certainly evident in those work, as I can see is the main emphasis in your school. Please post more!

    Do the students only work in traditional medium? Just wondering if they allow any digital stuff, but considering your classical approach, I somehow doubt it. Just curious

    Late last year, Semyon Bilmes and family of the Ashland Academy of Art announced that the school would close in October 2010 and immediately relocate to Portland, Oregon. They have since changed plans again. Semyon Bilmes has said that he will, instead, relocate to Hawaii and take only ten students with him.

    The Ashland Academy of Art is becoming Atelier Maui

    The Ashland Academy of Art is pleased to announce that it is moving to Maui.

    With a new name and a new location, Atelier Maui will bring superior classical European instruction in painting and drawing to a lush tropical paradise.

    Maui North Shore has been a worldwide destination for artists and free spirits for decades. With its ideal climate and rich natural beauty, the island has been ranked time and again by travel experts as the “Best Island in the World.”

    Atelier Maui will now hold classes against the backdrop of this unspoiled physical setting. Only minutes from the beach of Maui’s beautiful North Shore, situated on two and a half acres of thriving tropical forest, the Atelier’s new property is the perfect retreat for any artist. Giant palm, banana and avocado trees, birds of paradise, and other exotic forms of life, provide the setting for our state of the art facilities. The studios are designed to provide to students with the best natural lighting. Large windows and skylights with northern exposure make it the ideal setup for artists.

    Atelier Maui is committed to providing each student with personal studio space and a rigorous curriculum. Class size is limited to twelve students and admission is subject to interview. Classes are held five days a week and include both studio work and studies en plein air in the sublime surroundings of the Hawaiian landscape. Studio exercises include extensive work from the model, as well as studies of classical sculptures and still life’s. The curriculum also ensures ample time for personally tailored instruction and individual critique.

    Classes at Atelier Maui will begin in October, 2010. Classes will continue to be held in Ashland prior to this date. The academic year is divided into four quarters (Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer). Each quarter runs 10-12 weeks. Tuition is $9500 per year or $2900 per semester, model fees not included. Housing on the premises is limited.

    Atelier Maui offers a unique opportunity for the uncompromising pursuit of art and the appreciation of beauty. Our small international community of students and faculty enjoys the perfect ambiance for collaboration with those who share a passion for excellence in art. We believe in inspiration and the cultivation of talent and skill nestled in the awesome beauty of nature herself. Aspiring artists encounter the explosion of colors, forms and textures, and the overwhelming effect of this place on the senses. The fragrance of tropical flowers, the echoes of exotic birdsongs, the luminosity of the natural color palette, the ocean in its vast expanse against the golden sand of perfect beaches, towering mountains, even the honey-dipped air itself mixed with the gentle unrelenting breeze from the sea—all of this makes up the incomparable experience of Atelier Maui.

    The students stuff is nice and all but what I think is the main point of this thread is to get people to go to this school. Like free advertisement of their school, and what you might do. lol With all that said I don't care if that is what your doing, I'm not a fan of Fine Arts as much as others but I think that it does take a lot of practice(like any other) and it is cool in its own way.
