Welcome to the Art of Acting Studio Online Application Portal!

The Art of Acting Studio is an acting school in Los Angeles. Its roots go back to Jacob P. Adler, one of the great actors of the American Yiddish Theater; to Stella Adler, legendary acting teacher and practitioner of modern acting technique; and also to Harold Clurman, cofounder of the Group Theater. The spirit that has animated the American acting landscape for the past 100 years infuses the Art of Acting Studio’s goals and mission, which revolves around the idea that growth as an actor and growth as a human being are synonymous.
