Donating to ARC


How can you contribute?

The Art Renewal Center® is dedicated to the renewal of traditional art education and training. The much-needed contributions are used to support our ARC Approved™ ateliers and provide scholarships for students who study the techniques of the past, thereby acquiring the tools needed to create great Contemporary Realist works. They help us maintain our extensive library of news stories, features, articles, editorials, essays, technical information, ARC Living Masters Gallery™, lists of ARC Approved™ ateliers and schools, and the steadily expanding ARC Museum, with thousands of high quality images of the greatest paintings and sculptures in history.
