Roman Riva Art Academy is dedicated to teaching art for beauty's sake.

We pride ourselves in our love for aesthetics.

We also take pride in our ability to teach. We do not bore students with pointless exercises and redundancy. Rather, our homework exercises have a direct purpose.

We fully believe that we were all born artists. It's just that some of us were discouraged from producing art from an early age. We believe we can bring that art loving inner child back to our students.

"I've watched sunrises and sunsets in three continents. Seen some of the world's most spectacular waterfalls. But nothing, and I mean nothing, is as beautiful as a woman."

Hi, I’m Roman Riva

I'm a Texas-based artist, specializing in Fantasy Pinups.

I don't like the fact that our world is not only becoming more cynical, we're valuing aesthetics less and less.

I want to counter that. If I can teach thousands of regular people to bring back that artistic child in themselves, I've lived a fulfilling life.
