The best art schools in the world
Many art schools combine traditional techniques with contemporary. (painting image by Linda Brotkorb from

A career in the field of art, whether in fine art, art history, or performance arts (just to name a few), combines immense creativity and talent. To enhance learning and create more job opportunities, an education is important. Many of the best art schools in the world are in the United Kingdom and the United States.

Royal Academy of Arts

As the only school in Britain offering a postgraduate program in art, the Royal Academy of Arts in London is also the oldest in the country. This program includes royal academician professors along with visiting artists, critics and writers. Students not only receive lectures from these individuals, they also have the opportunity to work one-on-one with them. Study is combined from many studio art mediums like painting, sculpture, digital media, print, and installation and time-based art. The Royal Academy boasts the oldest purpose-built life drawing studio in the nation and utilises new technology such as digital media workstations. The school has a very competitive admissions process due to these unique characteristics, small class-sizes and the fact that it charges no tuition fees.
