Kline Academy Financial Aid
With the mission to give anyone who seeks a better art education an opportunity to learn the techniques of the masters, Kline Academy offers a limited number of in house scholarships each session to students who could otherwise not afford to attend class with at Kline.
Because we feel it is important for students to personally contribute to their education in order to be invested in their classes, we only offer reduced rate scholarships of 75% or 50% of tuition based on the students need. Scholarships are only available in ongoing classes with open spaces.
To apply for a scholarship please fill out the form below and we will contact you directly.
Please note the longer you enroll for the less you pay per class i.e. - students who are enrolling by the month receive a discount over those paying by the class and students enrolling by the quarter get an even greater discount. We also offer discounts to students who enroll in 3 or more consecutive classes. Please contact us for more information.

As you may know we are in a crisis situation when it comes to Art Education in Los Angeles. The local universities and many other schools have opted out of skill-based training in their Fine Art programs long ago. Today in many BA programs for example, a young student could ride his skateboard through paint and onto a canvas and earn an A over a student who has had skill based training and created a beautiful portrait!
In our opinion, this is insane. And because of this it is our driving force to maintain an artistic center in Los Angeles that is dedicated to skill based art training, one that is acutely aware of the importance of aesthetics, and the simple beauty of replicating the human form we want to ensure we can continue this great tradition of Skill-Based Art.
No other art form has been so attacked the way that traditional fine are has. "Throwing the baby out with the bath water" is an understatement. In music, musicians still study scales, in theatre, actors still study the classics. But in Fine Art, the same is not true and it is nearly impossible to visit a gallery today and still see art that makes one say ahhhhh…. instead of huh????
At our academy, we have trained amazing artists who are carrying on the tradition of skill-based art making. Some of our classes only have 3 or 4 students but instead of canceling the class, we keep it going at our expense. We are not a non-profit organization but I can assure you that we are not laughing all the way to the bank either. We keep our team of professional artists working and the studio operating. If you agree and support what we are doing and would like to make a contribution to the academy below, we will be very grateful. Funds will be used to keep our classes going and help students in need.
