Southern Atelier Now Accepting Applications for the Miano Apprenticeship Program

Published on June 30, 2021

The Southern Atelier is proud to present their apprenticeship program, under the direction of ARC Associate Living Master Charles Miano, designed as a 4-level program with a 2-fold course of study. In addition to traditional long term projects such as casts, master copies, portraits and figure works, our apprenticeship curriculum highlights rigorous short, intermediate and long practice from the live model. The combination of projects and practice is unique among contemporary ateliers. This balanced approach develops hand eye coordination quickly and improves an artist's ability to see and capture life and movement dramatically while at the same time learning to finish works of art to the highest standards of excellence.

Spaces are limited to provide one-on-one instruction and detailed attention, so students can thrive in their study no matter their entry level. Using Miano’s step-by-step proven approach to breaking down complex classical ideas, students elevate the quality of their drawing and painting work within weeks of training. Throughout the apprenticeship program, students may also attend workshops at Southern Atelier given by visiting master artists from around the world.

The Miano Apprenticeship is broken into trimester terms, for $3800 per term. Apprentices may benefit from having their own individual work area, teaching opportunities, public gallery representation, and a key to the Atelier studio, located in luminous Sarasota, Florida. For application and enrollment information visit: Home | Southern Atelier

“Mr. Charles Miano’s teachings are beautifully balanced... During his lessons East meets West…. the effort and hard work that he demands of his students is also presented with the need to let things develop naturally. It is a refreshing and daring methodology…. honest and unselfish instruction to students with serious intentions in art.” - Joe Oliva Ganoza, Alumni

Georgetown Atelier now accepting applications for Fall 2021 (in-person studio education)

Published on June 18, 2021

Georgetown Atelier is a classical drawing and painting program, which also recognizes the critical role that imaginative realism plays within the classics. Georgetown Atelier was founded in 2008 by Tenaya Sims (ARC Salon Best in Show winner 2016). The Atelier is located within the Equinox Studios campus in the Georgetown district of Seattle, WA. Home to over 100 artists, Equinox Studios is a thriving arts and artisan community. Students enjoy the benefits of being part of this artist community, as well as the ‘family’ of ateliers at Gage Academy of Art.

Along with Tenaya, the teaching staff is comprised of Christopher Remmers (ARC Salon 3rd Place Imaginative Realism award), Tiffany Dae (ARC Salon Finalist) and Riley Doyle (ARC Salon Finalist). These highly talented professionals all graduated from Georgetown Atelier. In addition to being excellent teachers and having exceptionally warm characters, they are masters of the craft.

At Georgetown Atelier, students begin by working observationally as they learn such core subjects as constructive anatomy, value studies, perspective, and cast drawing. Students then learn how to extend beyond observation into the inventive. The “Rock Project” is one example of the bridge between the observational and the imaginative. Students initially draw a rock from observation through studying its visual properties (planar vs. round, quality of texture, lighting, etc.). Students then draw a rock from imagination, informed by their observational studies of the real rock.

There are 4 major tiers of the curriculum which students follow a progression of projects along: Drawing, Painting I, Painting II, and Professional Development. During the Professional Development stage, under the mentorship of the instructors, students build a cohesive body of work and cultivate their “inner vision”.

Magrath Sculpture Studio Accepting Applications

Published on June 17, 2021

The Magrath Sculpture Atelier at the Gage Academy of Art in Seattle enters its 8th year, having weathered the pandemic with hybrid classes focused on core skills that included master cast studies, hands, feet and self portraiture along with deep dives into artistic anatomy. They look forward to meeting in person again with live models and gestures in wire and clay in the fall moving into more detailed figure studies in winter.

Magrath Sculpture Atelier is also excited about a new part time online program where continuing and aspiring sculptors will meet weekly to discuss and critique work and readings, get assignments for work in home studios, and share discoveries and questions. It's a way to continue and extend the community for distant learners who may not have local access to sculpture resources, not to mention put our newly acquired virtual skills and resources to use.

The Magrath Sculpture Atelier is a multi-year, part-time Atelier designed to confer the core disciplines needed to become a practicing figurative sculptor at a high level of excellence. Students become adept in both traditional approaches and the history of figurative sculpture while engaging in contemporary concerns and a variety of media.

Gustave Moreau: The Fables

Published on June 11, 2021

In collaboration with Musée National Gustave Moreau, Paris, this exhibition reveals for the first time 34 watercolours created by Gustave Moreau between 1879 and 1885, on loan from a private collection. They were part of a series commissioned by the art collector Antony Roux to illustrate the 17th-century Fables of Jean de La Fontaine (many of which derive from Aesop’s Fables). They were exhibited in Paris in the 1880s to great acclaim and in London in 1886, where critics frequently compared the artist to Edward Burne-Jones.

Moreau made 64 works for the series, which subsequently entered a Rothschild collection; however, a significant proportion was lost during WWII. The surviving works have not been exhibited since 1906 and they have only ever been published in black and white.
