Lasting approximately three years in duration, the Masters Academy Diploma(*) Programme is dedicated to the student committed to becoming a professional realist painter. We get the most out of our students’ abilities by working efficiently on tailored projects each day – increasing the difficulty prescribed based on each student’s level of proficiency, until the desired level of mastery is achieved.

Working along with, and being supervised by the principal artist(s) in the studio, Masters Academy students at The Barnes Atelier benefit from a wide range of technical and professional influences – preparing them for life as a realist artist.

*The Masters Academy Diploma Programme is not a government approved accreditation course. See our FAQ's page for more information.
