The Swedish Academy of Realist Art (SARA), was founded in 2006 by Hans-Peter Szameit and Sanna Tomac
as Scandinavia’s first school of fine art dedicated to traditional, realistic drawing and painting.

SARA provides the highest level of training in realistic drawing and painting using traditional techniques and methods of the Renaissance, 18th and 19th-century European and Russian academies, as well as outstanding contemporary methods. SARA uses the comparative method, it does not use the sight-size method.  Students acquire skills that allow them to create personal, contemporary works of art that meet the standards of excellence and professional craftsmanship set by master artists centuries ago.
