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!
