AraDona began his art education at the age of fifteen, and it was immediately apparent to art scholars and critics that he was an “Art Prodigy.”As a teenager, AraDona was awarded a two-year, full-scholarship with Disney Imagineering and the “The Herbert Ryman Scholarship,” studying a traditional art curriculum. As a high school student, AraDona was already working on portrait paintings that were commissioned by parents, teachers, and board members.


During his senior year at Glendale High School, he acquired sixty-five-thousand-dollars in academic scholarships towards his art education, and began selling paintings. Several celebrities have purchased his early paintings.


In 2006, AraDona had his first one-man show at the Pasadena Art Club held in Cal-tech’s Dabney Hall, where more than twenty mid to life-size paintings were exhibited. AraDona graduated at the age of seventeen, receiving much recognition and more than sixteen scholarships from all over the United States, such as the California Art Alliance Award (The highest award that can be bestowed upon a student of art from the State of California). After graduating high school, AraDona went to Italy, where he studied classical drawing and painting at the Florence Academy of Art. After three years of training, AraDona graduated from the academy and returned to the states to continue his career as a portrait and figurative painter.
