THE ATELIER SYSTEM

Figure_Painting_Jamie

The atelier system is a highly-structured and systematic curriculum which is passed on from tutor to student. It emerged around the seventeenth century and later became the most common method of training painters.

Students of differing standards and experience work together, each learning from the other and with the tutor tailoring his critique to that of a student’s individual requirements.This is an extremely effective way of hastening the process of learning and getting results.

Tasks are assigned like building blocks and each task must be completely mastered before moving on to the next.
