With its traditional curriculum, the Angel Academy of Art has resurrected the knowledge of art’s golden age: the Renaissance.

 

The programme teaches techniques begun in the early 1400s and developed over the ensuing 600 years; it is the system that created the masters. Its adherents include Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, Titian, Caravaggio, Velasquez, Rembrandt, van Dyck, Lord Leighton, Alma-Tadema, Bouguereau and, more recently, Annigoni.

Academy director and founder Michael John Angel has researched this traditional system for the past 40 years. “Those who do not learn from the masters waste their lives re-inventing the wheel. Priceless knowledge has been sacrificed in the 20th century,” he says. “Starting from nothing you can go nowhere, but, stand on the shoulders of giants, and you possess the tools and vision to travel far.”
