The Part-Time Classical Program students forge their foundational drawing and painting abilities as the instructor guides  them through a sequential curriculum over a one year period. However, this timeline is the default template and can be individually adjusted per discussion with the instructor.

On Tuesday evenings students work from individual projects (still-life, casts, master copies and other) and Thursday evenings from a live model. During class, the instructor works with students individually and demos or lectures when appropriate.

This program is perfect for beginning and experienced students who are serious about building a classical foundation, but are unable to accommodate the time commitment of a full-time Atelier.

This class is an ongoing program that has a 1 year curriculum cycle. While it is optimal to begin in the Fall term, students may begin at the beginning of any term if there are any openings. Students may also choose to continue their ‘apprenticeship’ past the 1 year cycle. For these students, their projects are tailored to further growth and reduce redundancy if necessary.

In the Illustration Part-Time Program, students learn how to build realistic imagery from the ground up. This class is geared toward classical artists and industry artists alike. Students learn how to understand the visual properties that surround us, not just copy them. For example, if an artist understands what properties make glass of wine look like a glass of wine, and how the environment around it affects its appearance, they can paint one into their composition convincingly without necessarily setting one up in their studio.

Using traditional materials (graphite, ink, and gouache), students first learn core illustration abilities in black and white. These subjects include layering, blending, and rendering various types of surfaces, such as wood, metal, rusted metal, etc. Students then learn more advanced techniques in color. After establishing core abilities, they work on a series of projects, building in scope and complexity over time.

This class is an ongoing program that has a 1 year curriculum cycle. While it is optimal to begin in the Fall term, students may begin at the beginning of any term if there are any openings. Students may also choose to continue their ‘apprenticeship’ past the 1 year cycle. For these students, their projects are tailored to further growth and reduce redundancy if necessary.
