About ARC:

The Foundation for the Art Renewal Center, a 501(c)3) is a private, not-for-profit educational foundation, with a mission. ARC was founded in 1999 to present responsible opposing views to the modernist art establishment. The ARC website, has grown to 500,000,000 hits per year with 350,000 visitors each month and is a hub for artists, educators, gallery owners, curators and art lovers alike.

ARC supports traditional realism and technical mastery in the visual arts. On ARC, the Atelier Map allows aspiring artists and art students the opportunity to select a true classical atelier which has achieved the ARC standard, by location. Each Atelier has it's own section with detailed information about the schools listed as ARC Approved™. The Living Masters™ Gallery provides exposure to comtemporary realists of with masterly skills and is proof that great contemporary works are being created in the here and now. Our advisors and judges include professional classically trained artists, art historians and scholars, whose judgement is based on years of experience and research, with expertise and standards for reviewing and approving schools, artists and ateliers that foster the classical tradition in art.

The ARC Museum was created as an educational and artists resource. During September 2008, The ARC Museum hit a database milestone in that the images in the dabase totalled 65,536 images and needed to be expanded as the database was full! Hi-resolution views allow our visitors to explore the depths of technique right down to the brush stroke in each artwork. We have received an overwhelming number of requests to print these images. The ARC Store custom prints images from the ARC Museum, many of which are unavailable elsewhere, allowing our visitors the opportunity to bring these beautiful artworks home.
