What does a good art academy really do?
A good art academy will know you like a grandfather knows his favorite grandson. They will carefully assess your current level and then devise the most effective plan for you to become the best artist before you know it. Part of your plan should include regular reviews to make sure you're progressing at the perfect rate and getting the results you want.
We do all of that, but unlike other academies, the MAA team isn't just focused on maintaining that perfect balance. Our goal is to challenge you, we will push you until you reach your limits and then we will push you some more to break that limit. We don't let you settle for less than the best.
