Welcome to the Texas Academy of Figurative Art and our new website! We are pleased to finally go “live” with our new site design and we hope you find it easier to navigate and to find the information you want about the Texas Academy of Figurative Art.

Please take time to read about our Philosophy and History and check out the images in the Student Gallery. After only 5 academic years we have gained some very talented students who are doing beautiful work in the realist tradition. We believe student work is always the best indicator of how well a fine art program is doing in developing artists. We also have added this blog page to keep you up to date on TAFA news and other subjects that support our mission and the values we promote. So please check back frequently to see what we have going on.

I want to thank Michael and all his creative staff at Lola Lorena for this new site! Michael is a gifted designer and artist right here in the great state of Texas! We believe this site he has created reflects the professionalism and beauty that symbolizes the kind of work we are striving for at TAFA.
