About the Academy of Art University

The Academy of Art University was founded in 1929 by a husband and wife team in San Francisco. They started out with around 45 students, and that number grew substantially by 1985 when the school taught 5,000 students. At that time the school became accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design.

It has always remained under the guidance of the same family, and now the school is led by the granddaughter of the founders. She has brought in more programs and training for artists of diverse backgrounds, and she has expanded the network of students to over 14,000, according to their website.

The Academy of Art University offers a wide array of courses for all types of students. They offer pre-college courses, undergraduate programs, graduate programs, and plenty of other types of degree and non-degree offerings. Their course catalog is available online along with plenty of other information for interested applicants.
