The Visual Art Institute (VAI) was founded in 1978. Its mission is to foster the education and development of visually gifted children’s talents by providing in depth training, independent study and experimentation in all aspects of visual art while preserving each child’s artistic individuality and imagination. This is accomplished by understanding and accommodating a student’s right brained learning style; correlating a unique, comprehensive visual art curriculum with non-directive teaching methods; and providing continuity in studies consistent with individual talents. VAI fosters award-winning art and facilitates the development of scholarship portfolios for university entrance.
