A classical art Atelier with courses in drawing and painting, it is led by its founder, David Chang, a classically-trained artist, professor and chair of the department. The Academy is a place where pupils learn one-on-one with a master to perfect their drawing and painting. It remains the first of its kind at a public university in the nation. Since its inception, FIU’s most talented students and alumni have become a part of this unique and competitive experience at the university, establishing it as a leader of visual art in higher education.
