The Masters Academy of Art has been dedicated to providing the highest quality art education to students in Utah for the last 10 years. As the only traditional art academy in Utah which offers a full-time academic program, The Masters Academy of Art provides a disciplined, organized and rigorous artistic environment that helps students develop the necessary skills to reach their highest artistic potential. Please join us in bringing the Masters Academy to a larger audience.
The Masters Academy is now attempting to expand our reach to better serve the needs of our students by growing our community and providing more opportunities and a richer environment for students to learn. With this expansion comes the need for more studio equipment, lighting, easels, casts and a larger space with natural north light. The new, larger studios and added studio necessities will better serve our current and future students needs, enhancing the quality of education we can provide. Below is a short video of the potential new studio space, which has a 150-foot long bank of massive north windows.
Our Kickstarter rewards are generally simple. Original art and education. What we have to share is the years of knowledge and experience gained through our own academic training, as well as years working and selling as professional artists. It is our goal to help others by passing on as much information as we can and sharing our work with you.
Below you will find examples of teacher and student work. Please consider the rewards on the right of this page that provide opportunities and/or original artwork should you choose to invest in our vision for growing art education. As a backer, you will have the opportunity to provide yourself, someone you love, or just a deserving art student, teen or young mother with the opportunity to further their artistic knowledge. By choosing one of the rewards you are helping to grow our artistic community and spread the importance of beauty in the world.
Our greatest desire is to share our knowledge and help develop the skills of as many students as we can possibly reach. So far students have come to us from all over the world including Great Britain, Australia, Guatemala, Indonesia, Philipines, China, Mexico and all over the US. Please help us as we try to better serve this global community. Support our Kickstarter and give the gift of knowledge and art!

Risks and challenges
We have found a larger studio space in Salt Lake that we would love to move into. It is considerably more per month than the studios we now occupy. Whether or not we can relocate to these new studios depends greatly on the amount we are able to raise here on Kickstarter. It is a potential reality that the new studio space may not work out. The studios we now occupy, however, still have room to grow and with some clever partitioning, we can still provide for several new students in our current location. At a minimum, we will need more lights, still life stands, casts, drapery, and partitions.
Original Artwork- Providing these works will obviously be time consuming. Each work offered will be original and will be created specifically for this Kickstarter campaign.
One-on-one critiques and workshops - These will need to be scheduled on an individual basis and we will do our best to make sure that each backer is able to receive this reward in a timely manner.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
