WELCOME TO SUMPTER ACADEMY OF ART
Make Your Mark.
Sumpter Academy of Art is Portland's atelier school for the study of classical drawing and painting. The Academy offers both short-term coursework and a multi-year program that combines 19th century atelier practices with those of the original Italian academy--first founded by Annibale Carracci in 1582 (as the Accademia degli Incamminati).
Please check out the links below for more information on the Atelier Program, upcoming short-term Courses & Workshops, our student work and registration information. We've added a FAQ link below to simplify the process, but please feel free to let us know if we can help answer any questions. Thanks for visiting Sumpter Academy of Art!
