Àni Villas is proud to be an affiliated supporter of the Àni Art Academies, a non-profit program that will provide an intensive free multi-year oil painting and drawing education. The program fosters a group of up-and-coming artists around the world. The Academy and Villas help expose artist's work to the relatively wealthy tourists Àni Villas attracts and other vacationing tourists that would love to take home a great painting to associate with their dream vacation.
All Ani Art Academies are completely free for students inclusive of materials and even lunch. Students are chosen by need and work ethic and instructed using a methodology and curriculum developed by the innovative and ground breaking Anthony Waichulis.
We encourage you to see the results the Ani Art Academies for yourself at www.aniartacademies.com. All the artwork are drawings and paintings, not photography.
Currently academies are operating in Anguilla, Dominican Republic and Pennsylvania, where Mr. Waichulis trains future instructors in his methodology that they may travel later to the schools under development around the world. In 2013 we expect to open academies in Thailand and Sri Lanka.
