The Safehouse Atelier
07-29-2010, 02:19 AM
We have been putting together a new atelier program and are now currently accepting students!
You can check out the website at http://www.thesafehouseatelier.com for all the info or just read below for and check out some of the work throughout the thread for both instructor and student work.
P.S. There's pictures after all them words if you feel like skipping it.
ABOUT THE SAFEHOUSE ATELIER
The Safehouse Atelier provides a specialized program of study that is heavily based in accurately understanding and representing the visual world and to take the knowledge gained from this study and apply it to work done from the imagination. Classical drawing is learned in tandem with concept design. Classes are taught in a workshop environment where students learn actual studio practices in a hands-on manner directly from instructors who work along with students to demonstrate how the ideas and concepts being learned are put to practical use.
To develop solid draftsmanship, classical methods of drawing and painting are studied on a daily basis. Time honored atelier methods are employed with the students beginning with cast drawing and working their way through cast painting and still-life and then moving on to life drawing, and finally life painting. Other subjects that are addressed on a weekly basis are alla prima painting, gesture drawing, and landscape painting.
On the imaginative side, working methods taken from production studios are used as a basis to teach students how to invent designs for characters, monsters, vehicles, and environments. Illustration and personal work of an inventive nature are also addressed. Real world design problems are used as spring boards for developing work and the process of how to work from the initial concept phase on to the final is heavily examined.
When students are accepted, their current level of experience is taken into account. If a student can demonstrate their command of a subject then they will be advanced to more challenging situations. Since all progress is based on personal achievement, all instruction is tailored specifically to an individual. Because of this the class subjects fluctuate depending on the student.
All instructors are working professionals in their given field. This ensures that working methods have been gained through real world experience so that students may learn practical applications and approaches that may be put into use to immediately further their careers whether it be in galleries or in a design studio.
Classes are held from 9am-4pm Monday through Friday.
Tuition is $600 per month.
Enrollment is ongoing.
We are located in San Francisco, CA.
