Atelier Art Classes offers very flexible, individual instruction in a variety of courses and casual classes in the traditional fundamentals of form and tonal drawing, life drawing from the nude model, classical plaster cast, still life and landscape. We also offer classes in painting, primarily in oil paint, but as well as oil painting, you can learn to use pastels and acrylics. You will learn to paint from the plaster cast, the still life, landscape en plein air, and finally the figure by painting the nude life model, over time learning to understand three dimensionality, light, atmosphere and design. We offer several life classes and untutored sessions from the nude life model over the week. We offer a course in modeling in clay, taught using the method of famed 19th century sculpture and anatomy teacher Eduard Lanteri. We also offer a basic ecorche course (sculpting/ modeling a simple flayed or anatomical figure) that emphasises the most important artistic anatomy.
