The Vienna Academy of Visionary Art will open its doors in September of 2013.

Located in the historic Palais Palffy in the heart of Vienna – home of Ernst Fuchs’ Studio, The Phantasten Museum, and the Galerie Palffy, the Academy is founded by The Visionary Guild together with Professor Ernst Fuchs.

The Visionary Guild is a circle of ten artists - five men and five women - who have assisted Professor Fuchs in the past. From London, Paris and Vienna to Melbourne Australia and the West Coast of America, these ten artists transmit their love of craft while sharing insights into the artist’s vocation.

Their names are already well-known in the Visionary Art world:
Kuba Ambrose
Laurence Caruana
A. Andrew Gonzalez
David Heskin
Maura Holden
Daniel Mirante
Amanda Sage
Timea Tallian
Emma Watkinson
Aloria Weaver

Collectively and individually, they have taught hundreds of students, from all quarters of the globe, particularly through The Visions in the Mischtechnik Seminar in Italy.

At the core of the Academy's curriculum is our 2 year and 3 year Diploma Programme with courses in historical painting techniques, old masters studies and life drawing, as well as visionary seeing and the exploration of myths, symbols and styles from East to West. Shorter stays are also possible – from the three month Single Trimester Programme to the two week Intensives.

It is a private international teaching institution with English as the primary language of instruction.

At the heart of the programme is the individual artist’s quest for beauty, spirit and vision. The curriculum, developed by the Faculty as a whole, encourages both technical mastery and the creative expression of genius.
