Our Story

Artists need community. Milan Art Club was created by the driven team members of Milan Art Institute to ensure that all artists around the world have the opportunity to connect with each other and become inspired through engaging resources. 

Milan Art Institute is a place where passionate hearts and creative minds come together to bring visions to life. The founders, John and Elli Milan, have been working as successful collaborative artists for over 20 years and have made a living during that entire period solely through art. Their daughter, Dimitra Milan, became a professional artist, and before turning 16, had generated over a million dollars through the sales of her own artwork. Their works have been featured in galleries across the world. And now, the Milans are sharing their powerful insights about the creation of art with everyone. 

The Milan Team is completely devoted and fully committed to helping artists achieve their dreams. They have rallied a dedicated and remarkable group of people to help fulfill their dream of inspiring artists all over the world to live out their true purpose by creating art. They mentor artists who desire to earn a living from selling their artwork professionally and join the next Art Renaissance. Milan Art Institute has educated hundreds of artists all over the world, equipping them with the necessary tools they need in order to create the art that they’ve always dreamed of creating. Beginners and professionals come here to master skills, learn new techniques, and become inspired. The purpose of the Milan Art Institute is to enlighten and educate a worldwide audience about the transformational power of the visual arts.

This membership will give you access to incredible learning materials that will inspire you to improve your art skills. Also, it’ll help you connect with and establish relationships with artists all over the planet. The Renaissance was as successful as it was because artists shared ideas constantly. That’s what we’re doing here.

There are absolutely no requirements, you don’t even have to know how to draw a stick figure. You'll learn how to do much more than that, and it’ll be a fun process of learning and experimenting.

Yes, you can. However, because the Mastery Program has a rigorous curriculum, we recommend that you participate in challenges after you’ve completed all Mastery Program assignments.

There will be opportunities to join in-person events, such as conferences and workshops, but the club is exclusively hosted online. It’s better this way because you can join and participate from your home and at any time that you want!

In order to join, you must be 18 years or older. If you are 13 years or older, you may join, but only with parental consent. Children under the age of 13 will have to wait until they turn 13.

It can take up as much or as little time as you want. There will be several hours worth of content delivered to you every month, but the amount of time you spend creating is completely up to you. For your own mental health, we recommend creating art for at least 5 hours a week.

In order to have the best experience possible, we recommend that you have some oil paint, acrylic paint, brushes, mediums for your oil paint, and canvas at the least. If you are having trouble finding the right supplies to buy, we made a special kit, just for Art Club members here:

It is totally acceptable to become a member and not participate in challenges. However, we believe that participating will help you experience a lot of growth as an artist, so it will be to your benefit to try out the challenges.

Yes, you can. The downside to this is that you won’t be able to participate in the challenges and will miss the opportunity to win. Also, art moves quickly. The art world is ever-evolving and missing a month might mean you miss out on the birth of a brand new trend in the art world.

For every challenge, there are two winners: one of the challenges is hosted on Instagram using a specific hashtag for that challenge and another winner is determined by the Art Club Members, including YOU!

If you live somewhere Paypal is available, then that is the method we will use to pay you. If you live somewhere Paypal is not accepted, we will work with you to create a solution that works for everyone

How you want to use your membership is up to you. You do not have to be an active artist. You could just participate in the challenges by voting for your favorite artists to win or participate in the interesting discussions on our forums.

The Art Club only teaches visual art, but of course there are overlaps in theories between all forms of art, so it would be beneficial for any type of artist, whether you’re a poet, painter, musician or photographer.

Our learning platform, Kajabi actually has an app where you can access all of the content directly from your phone, so you do not need a laptop. However, viewing videos on a larger device would definitely be beneficial so that you can see more details.

We are offering a 3 month free trial from now until July 1st, don’t miss your chance to try the Art Club risk-free!

You will be charged a monthly membership fee of $19 starting the day you sign up. You can cancel your membership at any time.

Yes, you can. As soon as you cancel, you will have access until the next billing period. However, you will not be permitted to participate in the challenges as soon as you cancel your membership.

You have access to the materials for as long as you are an active member of the art club. Every month there is fresh new content added to an already vast library of materials.

We don't offer any refunds, but there is a free trial period during which you can cancel at any time. 

The challenges are exactly what they sound like: challenges meant to activate your creativity with creating art. Every month there is a new theme and a challenge surrounding that theme that you can participate in. For example, one month a challenge might be to create a non-objective abstract painting on a canvas at least 18”x24”. Once you participate in the challenge and submit it by sharing a picture of it via our guidelines, you’ll be entered to win cash prizes and art supply care packages!
