If that is the case the Institute of Culture (INAC) Fine Arts School gives you the opportunity to find the artist in you through a series of courses that will help you get to know that part of your nature you never knew you had.
The Fine Arts School was founded on August 13, 1913, and was located at the National Institute as suggested by its first headmaster Roberto Lewis. The school was created under the Decree No79 of June, 26 1913 and received the official name of Drawing and Painting School under the administration of Dr. Guillermo Andreve.
For 103 years this school has produced great artists such as Lucio López Cansuet “Kansuet”, Luis Aguilar Olaciregui, Silvia Acosta, to mention a few, who have the opportunity to sell their paintings in international galleries. August 13 is the anniversary of this institution and there will be a series of events for the public to come and see the works of its talented students.
