    The following schools have been included based on their effort to supply students with a skill-based education that is generally modeled on studio art training prior to the turn of the century. Many of these schools offer different observational approaches based on Russian, mainland European, American, and English academic methods. These schools differ considerably in aesthetic, curricula, size, and schedules. RAR suggests choosing the appropriate school for yourself based on the work of both the students and teachers.
