"Sofia's is an excellent place to take art classes! They really helped me with my portfolio and gave me that one on one time I needed to excel at a quick pace. I loved their drawing and figure drawing classes especially. Because of their help, I was accepted to all of the art schools I applied to: Parsons, SCAD, CCAD, and FIT. Definitely recommend taking classes there- wish I had started sooner!
Sofia Art Academy's program is very unique. It's based on traditional teaching methods of European special art schools for kids, colleges with BFA and universities with MFA programs, all in one. Just like in traditional, nineteen-century's art ateliers, we offer the opportunity to study classical drawing and painting techniques with master artists. Our program developed to enable students to gradually build very strong fundamentals in academic style, from beginner to professional level.
