Miano Academy is the first atelier in the state of Florida to receive approval from the prestigious Art Renewal Center. Your support plays a vital role in the success of Miano Academy’s commitment to provide a high level of artistic training at an affordable cost to students. Every dollar donated to Miano Academy supports our mission both in Florida and across the globe. Please consider making a donation or becoming a sponsor or patron. Help us teach emerging artists the methods of past master artists and insure the continuation of a long tradition of incredible realistic art.
There are many ways you can help Miano Academy. Support can come in the form of outright cash donations for general operating expenses or as scholarships for students of special merit. Our Apprenticeship Program, in particular, is in need of scholarship sponsors. Grants from organizations and individuals that support the arts and art education are another avenue of support. Sponsors can also underwrite special events, such as visiting Master Artist workshops and gala fundraisers. Miano Academy works closely with sponsors and donors to tailor their gifts so that they are meaningful for all. Miano Academy is proud to identify sponsors, donors and grantors in all our social media and advertising.
