Press Release for The Vienna Academy of Visionary Art
AN ACADEMY OF VISIONARY ART SET TO LAUNCH IN VIENNA
Opening its doors in September of 2013, The Vienna Academy of Visionary Art offers a two-year and three-year Diploma programme with courses in historical painting techniques, old masters studies and life drawing, as well as visionary seeing and the exploration of myths, symbols and styles from East to West. It is an international teaching institution with English as the primary language of instruction.
Located in the historic Palais Palffy – home of Ernst Fuchs’ Studio, The Phantasten Museum, and the Galerie Palffy - the Academy was co-founded by Professor Ernst Fuchs and The Visionary Guild - a circle of ten artists who, having assisted Fuchs in the past, now share studio space in the Palais Palffy and teach the Academy’s core courses.
From London, Paris and Vienna to Melbourne Australia and the West Coast of America, these ten artists – five men and five women –transmit their love of craft while sharing insights into the artist’s vocation. Their names are already well-known in the Visionary Art world - Kuba Ambrose, Laurence Caruana, A. Andrew Gonzalez, David Heskin, Maura Holden, Daniel Mirante, Amanda Sage,Timea Tallian, Emma Watkinson and Aloria Weaver. Collectively and individually, they have taught hundreds of students, from all quarters of the globe, particularly through The Visions in the Mischtechnik Seminar in Italy.
At the heart of the programme is the individual artist’s quest for beauty, spirit and vision. The curriculum, developed by the Faculty as a whole, encourages both technical mastery and the creative expression of genius.
