Review for Amario's Art Academy for the Gifted and Talented , Atlanta, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Amario's Art Acdemy for the Gifted has built a strong reputation for bridging the talents of young gifted art students and providing a path into a world of potential opportunities within the graphic arts industry. This school takes special care in providing each student with professionally guided instruction. During the structured curriculum the students engage in up-to-date technical applications in computer graphics and how to apply that technology into their desired art form. Amario's Art Academy creates a forum where youth can express and explore art through comic book story-telling, drawing, and animation. The Academy teaches students how to draw, research, and appreciate the many mediums of art. They use comics to promote literacy within the classroom and encourage reading outside the classroom. And finally, the Academy encourages its students to think and incorporate the things they learn into their daily life, art, characters, words, stories, action, color and design.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have a son whose art interests was provided excellent classes as taught by Amario and his staff of professional instructors. I was very pleased with my son's advancement.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

hope that they would be able to expand their effots to the curriculum of the local school board as quite often the budgets for arts education is always cut leaving the gifted and the average student without art education.
