Did you know that a top-level professional illustrator in Japan can earn over $5000 for just one page of work?

To reach that top professional level, usually you would have to go to school or collage, paying expensive tuition fees and attending lessons on a strict schedule. But with Anime Art Academy, you can enjoy lessons at your own pace, in English, in the comfort of your own home - all for a reasonable one-off enrollment fee.
