New England's Classical Atelier Program at the Wethersfield Academy for the Arts provides the serious artist-in-training an opportunity to be coached and mentored by a distinguished faculty member. Atelier students work side-by-side with their instructors in WAA's beautiful north light studio. Students are also provided with individual space within the studio to complete projects independently or with the guidance of their instructor. Students beginning in the medium of interest will also be guided in visual perspective, use of medium and fundamentals.
Classes are given in figure, portrait, still life, and landscape including plein air painting. Workshops are often held with visiting master artists from around the country. Youth classes and a new Fall Lecture Series can be found on: wethersfieldarts.org
