From the ARC website news page;
“ARC is pleased to welcome the Julian Ashton Art School as a new ARC ApprovedSM Atelier!
The Julian Ashton Art School was founded by Julian Rossi Ashton in 1890 and is Australia’s oldest continuous Fine Art School.
The school’s core philosophy is to encourage fine drawing and sound practice in the craft of painting. Students may gain basic skills and pursue a personal course to the very highest level of technical prowess without having to engage with current theories about the nature of art.”
