We provide a dedicated full-time 3-year Fine Art Program for local and international students as well as part-time courses, evening classes, weekly kroki (figure drawing) classes, and specialized art workshops.

The language of instruction is English. Enrollment is limited and the student body is kept small, which allows for intensive individual instruction within an intimate and supportive atmosphere that often leads to rapid student development.

Why Study Art with The Swedish Academy of Realist Art?

SARA is not a preparatory art school, but an alternative to the state run art universities. Enrollment is limited to 24 full-time students, which allows for intensive individual instruction within an intimate and supportive atmosphere. 

- Highly-Specialized Art Education
Since SARA offers highly-specialized education, we attract students from all around the world.  Currently, 40% of SARA students come from other countries and it is for this reason that the language of instruction is English.

Student Testimonials:
"The art program is a very challenging one but the rewards are certainly worth the effort. I can’t wait to see what my third year training will produce on my quest to being that artist that once was only a dream."
- William, USA

"The atmosphere round the school is lighthearted and friendly yet hard working and it is a pleasure to work here every day!"
- Miles, United Kingdom

"The program is built up well, preparing you step by step for full color oil painting, and all the things you learn along the way can be applied to your personal art as well. In short, it’s a great place to be if you’re motivated and want a solid technical foundation for the expression of your own ideas."
