FALL SESSION - Sanitary Mesures

order to respect the sanitary distancing instructions, the Académie des beaux-arts de Québec will be offering a semi-private fall session. Regular classes for adults and drawing classes for young people will be open to groups of up to 4 students.

In order to be able to offer these courses to a smaller number of students, the regular course price will be temporarily increased. Please note that we are offering a 10% discount on the fall 2020 session to all our students who were registered in a course during the winter 2020 session.

Welcome to our website!

Founded in 2008, the Académie des beaux-arts de Québec is a private fine art educational institute unique to Quebec City.
Our mission being to teach the principles of classical academic figurative art,  we offer drawing classes in graphite pencil and dry pastels as well as traditional oil painting techniques. 

Specializing in portraiture, the teachers of the Academy are passionate figurative artists who are committed to sharing their knowledge of the fine arts.

We offer courses for adults, teenagers and children.  The classes are held mainly in the evening or during the weekend and are limited to a maximum of 6 students to ensure top quality, one on one education.

The training program is divided into 10 levels to allow for progressive learning. The academic year is divided into three semesters (Fall - Winter - Spring). 
Note that it is possible to join a training session at any time during the year.


Learn how to draw and paint at your own pace using the classical rules of art.  



It is with great pleasure that we announce the summer competition of the Académie des beaux-arts de Québec!

The winning work will be presented on Facebook and the Academy website pages and will receive free museum-quality supervision. We will highlight the quality of three other works by awarding a 2nd place, a 3rd place and a special mention.
