The Vienna Academy of Visionary Art revives classical techniques of painting while pursuing art as the expression of beauty, spirit and vision. To transmit an in-depth practice of painterly technique, our school follows the established model of the Academy system, while also promoting individual creativity through the pursuit of Visionary Art.

Student Shakti Shannon at the easelWe offer a rich variety of programmes, from three years to three months to two weeks. Each class is taught by skilled professionals who transmit their value of craft while sharing insights into the artist’s vocation.

At the heart of our programme is the painter’s quest for Original Vision, expressed in a unique and refined manner.
By promoting cultural ideals of craftsmanship, beauty and style, we celebrate the individual emergence of creativity and genius.
