Hey world changers! I’m so excited to show you how I’ve become successful doing what I love! As a teenager I dove into my passion for art. With discipline and hard work I sold over a million dollars in art sales by the time I was 15. My success is a result of what I learned at the Milan Art Institute and now my paintings are collected by people from all over the world. I am pioneering a new age of artist influencers on social media, spreading beauty across the entire planet. As a mentor and co-owner at Milan Art Institute, I am passionate about equipping artists to change the world with their art.
Dimitra Milan
Hey guys! I am so thrilled to be one of the instructors for the program. As a music producer, painter, videographer, and poet, I envision a world where art is in every home – enriching life and our very existence. I started with little to no painting experience, took an instructional workshop just so I could write copy more effectively, and in just one lesson my understanding and painting skills increased so much! I learned that all it took was practice and good instruction to become a great artist. Now, I’m empowering artists all over the world.
Jake Dunn
Hey guys! Since I could remember I have always been attracted to the ethereal and supernatural. And through my studies at Milan Art Institute I have learned how to hone my inner voice and turn it into something powerful and heartfelt. Thanks to Milan Art I am now selling my Artwork all over the world and spreading my message! My Art portrays the beautiful and spiritual connection we have to nature and the symbiotic relationship between the heavenly power within humanity and the magic that resides in the earth. I look forward to helping you find this extraordinary voice within yourself as well!
Constantino Milan
Hi, I’m Dalia! I grew up in a family of artists and have always had art around me and was blessed to have a teaching and understanding of art history. I feel inspired to create an escape and understanding for true bliss and happiness. I try to create that utopia in my art and I hope that when people look at my art they feel transported into that special place for themself.
Dalia Milan
Hi! I grew up in a family of artists and have been fortunate enough to be able to explore my passions for creating since I was little. I am motivated by freedom, individualism, and expressing those needs through art. I aim to achieve balance between freedom and chaos through expressive mark making and abstract techniques.
Dafni Lynde
Hi, DJ Freezy J here! I am so excited to show you guys how to bring anything you dream to life in your artwork. I started painting and drawing on anything I could as a kid: t-shirts, jeans, jackets, motorcycles. Now I’ve been a professional artist for over 20 years! I’m inspired by artists like Jean Basquiat and Andy Warhol. Art, to me, is a way to bring joy to the world and ourselves — to be totally free!

Frequently asked questions
For parents
How will this help my child’s school work?
Our right brain is our creative brain! Everyone has the ability to be creative, and utilizing more creative efforts for even the most linear of projects can help tremendously. Even Corporate CEO’s regularly exercise their creative brain to help solve problems, conflicts, and create innovative projects.
Why should I pay that much money for art projects?
In this program we teach much more than simply how to paint. Our lessons include time management, goal setting, and being part of a community. We believe young creative people set culture standards; building confidence in their ability to be a world changer can do amazing things for our society as a whole.
Can they do this while going to school?

Absolutely! Each tutorial is only 15-20 minutes per week. We understand important commitments, and our goal is to add to their daily success habits. Your child is highly encouraged to commit to about 10 hours towards their painting and drawing exercises; this crucial skill-building time is similar to the 15-20 hours per week the average high school athlete commits to their sport. They will be so encouraged to see the amount of growth in their art skills they develop in such a short time!

For kids
Where can I get supplies?
We provide a list if you would like to get them yourself from a local art supply store. However, we have an exclusively priced Youth Kit curated specifically for this program that includes the highest quality materials for less than the cost of purchasing items individually.
Is this like more school? Will I be graded?
Although we are an Institute dedicated to learning, our Young Artist Program is not graded. Our goal is to help you create good lifetime practices and encourage you to take control of your learning.
Will there be other students to hang out with?
Yes! We have a special online platform just for our students to connect and share with each other! With your parent’s permission, you can also download our new Milan Art Social Media App in the Apple Store. This app connects you to other artists from around the world. Share your work, make friends, and get helpful feedback about your art.
