Event Description

A New Atelier Movement is sweeping America and Europe. The rapid growth of this movement is a testament to the void in contemporary art education. Artists of all ages and levels are hungry for the nearly lost lessons hidden in history’s greatest works of art. Atelier – Historically an artist’s workshop in which apprentices learned from a master artist. This style of mentorship has the distinct advantage of working with the individual student’s aptitude in order to develop the artist’s full range of abilities. he curriculum is based on cast studies, master copies, still life, and life studies (figure and portrait). Three ten-week terms progress through (1) drawing, (2) grisaille (monochromatic) painting, and (3) limited palette painting. Students may choose to do the three parts in one year, with each part a ten week term. Alternatively, they can choose a full year for each part, with three ten week terms per year, for a total of three years. After completing each section, advanced students may develop their own projects. Terms are Fall, Winter, and Spring with breaks for holidays and summer. Minimum attendance is three days per week: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, 9:30 am to 12:30 pm. The instructor will teach Monday and Wednesday, while Fridays are reserved for special programs or time for students to work on their own. Students will have their own studio space, and are strongly encouraged to work hours beyond the minimum requirement. Instructor: Holly White-Gehrt
