According to Wikipedia, the current “atelier method” is a form of fine art instruction modelled after the historic private art studios of Europe. An atelier consists of an artist, usually a professional painter or sculptor, working with a small number of students to train them in art.
Atelier schools can be found around the world, particularly in Northern America and western Europe.
Although the methods vary, most ateliers train students in the skills and techniques associated with creating some form of representational art, the making of two dimensional images that appear real to the viewer. They traditionally include sessions for drawing or painting from the nude model.
Jen has set up Atrium Atelier in order to make traditional training in painting and drawing accessible to those in the east of England, with Saturday programs, week-long or evening classes. Longer intensive courses are planned for those who come from further afield, click the Atelier logo above or here to go the blog to check for news and updates.
