Atelier 2nd Year: Fall term

Sept 15 - Nov 19    (10-week Term)

This term, in light of Covid-19, students will be assigned to one of two groups: group ORANGE or group BLUE--to limit the number of students present at any one time.  There may be flexibility to change from one group to another if space permits, or another student wishes to change places with you.


*Following registration, please email me with your preference for joining the Orange or Blue group--since they meet at slightly different times.  Please also let me know if you do not have a preference.


Orange group:  Each Tues + Every other Thursday

Primary  Instruction: Each Tues 4pm-6pm

Individual Instruction and Open studio Thursdays 4pm-6pm: Sept 17, Oct 1, 15, 29 & Nov 12  (On these dates, students are free to arrive up to 2 hours early to set up and begin work.)


Blue group:  Each Tues + Every other Thursday

Primary  Instruction: Each Tues 6:30pm-8:30pm

Individual Instruction and Open studio Thursdays 4pm-6pm: Sept 24, Oct 8, 22 & Nov 5, 19  (On these dates, students are free to arrive up to 2 hours early to set up and begin work.)


Students will have the option of joining either with Zoom or in-person (as safety guidelines permit) in small groups (of 4).  In other words, there will be a zoom camera switched on each day.  The instructor will teach with the camera and speaker setup for students using Zoom to be able to interact during the class--especially during lectures and studio work time--to receive feedback on their projects. 

During the class for those working in-person, masks and safety measures will be required for attendence.  Anyone who has been in the vicinity of a known or possible Covid-19 exposure MUST  choose to attend via Zoom until tested and receiving a negative test result from your healthcare provider.  If you have any symptoms of any virus, cold or flu, you are asked to refrain from attending in-person classes.  *It may be possible that some classes may require Zoom attendence due to requirements by public health officials.


Tuition: $585+ Fees $15
This 10-week term is focused on painting technique and design; Students are guided in grisaille (gray-tone) application to reduce complexity while learning the various painting strategies. Exercises and larger projects build on first-year foundations as students learn how to manage paint in both direct and in-direct painting techniques. Completion of three terms of 1st Year study in the Atelier Program is a requirement for enrollment in 2nd-Year coursework.
