"I studied here after school for many years and I absolutely loved it. The atmosphere is friendly and peaceful, with just the right amount of interaction with instructors and fellow students. Anyone interested in learning art can thrive here, regardless of level or background. "
"I've been studying at Princeton Academy of Art for two years and have been amazed at the progress I've seen in my classmates' and my own artistic skills. The key difference between Princeton Academy of Art and other, more casual, art classes is that they teach us how to think as artists. If you've ever had the experience of creating a painting or drawing and thinking, "This doesn't work, but I don't know why," the Princeton Academy of Art could be the answer for you. Princeton Academy of Art teaches the foundational skills, strategies, and approaches that contemporary artists need to create compelling representational art. "
"My name is Irene Feng, an undergraduate student studying fashion management at Cornell University. Although I was exposed to art at a young age, Anna was truly the one who fostered my interest and gave me systematic training in both classical and contemporary art. Throughout the five years of knowing Anna, I found her to be warm and easy to talk to. In the art-making process, I would come up with an idea, and she would immediately understand and guide me to reflect it in my art. This was especially helpful when building my portfolio for college application – you would really need someone with who you connect and trust. I feel at ease when I am working in the studio. The atmosphere is different from other studios that I’ve been to. Something about the smell or the interior makes me want to just sit down and produce. I was surrounded by teachers who are masters in their own style and students ranging from kids to seniors who share the same passion for art as I do. Until today, I am still in contact with friends I made in the studio."Irene Feng

“I’m an artist that was looking to attend a workshop or two at the academy. After a single workshop, I was hooked. The Russian academic approach that Princeton Academy of Art follows is so refreshing and lively. I learned how to analyze form from the inside out instead of only seeing form tonally. It was an eye-opening experience and I feel I can use what I’ve learned prior in conjunction with these new skills and really improve my work. I will definitely be back!”"Jessica McConnell
