Thank you to the Academy of Realist Art, Boston

Published on June 26, 2019

Thank you to Academy of Realist Art, Boston for sponsoring the Portraiture Category in the 14th International ARC Salon Competition.

The Academy of Realist Art, Boston was established in the historic leather district of Boston in 2009 by Cindy MacMillan. They have grown into a cozy medium-sized academy that prides itself on providing a nurturing environment with enthusiastic instructors that care about their students while demanding the highest standards of performance from them.

ARA Boston implements a curriculum that has been modeled after 19th century French Academies with refinements that reflect the modern world. The instructors have studio space in the school and welcome having an open discourse about their own art and work experiences as a complement to their class instruction. They also offer numerous high quality workshops with in-house and outside instructors that ARA Boston's teachers admire.

ARA Boston students and instructors have received scholarships from ARC and been acknowledged with numerous awards in previous ARC Salon competitions. ARA Boston understands how important this is in the development of an artist. That is why they have chosen to sponsor the portraiture awards for this year’s Salon. ARA Boston wishes all competitors the best of luck.
