Youth Classes: Our youth classes produce artwork that both children and parents are proud of.  The colors are rich, clean, and pleasing, and the subjects are clear.  Our classes teach plenty of techniques and focus on the elements of art and on building artistic skills.

Adult Classes:  Adult classes are taught at the beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels usually over a one, two or three week period.  Classical old master’s techniques are balanced with contemporary mixed media techniques.

Professional Classes:  We offer career development classes for professional artists.  These classes include critiques, portfolio development and art marketing.

Fine Arts Mastery Program:  The Mastery Program at the Milan Art Institute is specifically designed for serious artists who desire to make a living from their art.  John and Elli Milan are professional artists who have made their living for 20 years with the sale of their artwork.  They have personally designed this comprehensive program to give artists every tool and skill necessary to create and sell their artwork successfully.  Artists in the Mastery Program must demonstrate unrelenting passion, desire and dedication to their art.  Artists must strive to increase their skills and be open to learning.

John and Elli Milan have a vision to raise up artists who desire to participate in the worldwide artistic renaissance that is upon us.

If you are an artist who…

has a voice and wants to be heard
has passion and the ability to persevere
is ready to step outside your comfort zone
has a desire to see your art bring positive change and transform the world

…this program is for you.

The Fine Arts Mastery Program is designed to be completed within 1 year and may be completed in 2 years at the most. – 480-307-7150 – 24915 S. 220th Street – Queen Creek, AZ  85142
