The Academy of Fine Arts Zagreb (Croatian: Akademija likovnih umjetnosti u Zagrebu or ALU) is a Croatian art school based in Zagreb. It is one of the three art academies affiliated with the University of Zagreb, along with the Academy of Dramatic Art (ADU) and the Academy of Music (MUZA).

The Academy was established in June 1907 as the Royal College for Arts and Crafts (Croatian: Kraljevsko zemaljsko više obrazovalište za umjetnost i umjetni obrt) and initially had three departments, for sculpting, painting and art education. Academy's first professors were Robert Frangeš-Mihanović, Rudolf Valdec, Robert Auer, Oton Iveković, Bela Čikoš Sesija, Menci Klement Crnčić and Branko Šenoa. The Academy is still based in its original location at 85 Ilica street in Zagreb.

Since 1926 the architecture department was briefly active at the academy, and was headed by Drago Ibler. The graphic arts department was established in 1956, the restoration department in 1997 and the department for animation and new media in 1998. Today the academy has six departments, with a total of 365 students enrolled.
