Grand Central Atelier

Study - Spring Classes: Weekday Afternoons & Evenings

Afternoon, Evening and Weekend Studios are for artists in drawing, painting, and sculpture who share the Grand Central Atelier's ideals, and who aspire to high artistic fluency.

As in the full-time apprenticeship, the training is progressive. Evening and weekend participants are encouraged to begin in the cast hall. For those who are passionate and ambitious, this is an exciting introduction to the study of nature through the lens of classical realism. Cast drawing trainees will rapidly learn a tremendous number of complex and interrelated ideas. Only after this are they encouraged to study the figure, portrait, and still life, all of which expand on those early foundations.

This accessible avenue also allows the artist entry to other programs at the Grand Central Atelier encouraging interaction between the entire community. Additionally, evening and weekend programs provide portfolio opportunities for those interested in full-time apprenticeship, which views careful drawings as a sign of focused dedication.
