Atelier

    Atelier is the French word for “workshop”, and in English it is used principally for the workshop of an artist in the fine or decorative arts. The current 'atelier method' is a form of fine art instruction modeled after the historic private art studios of Europe. In this sense, an atelier consists of an artist, usually a professional painter or sculptor, working with a small number of students to train them in art. Although the methods vary, most ateliers train students in the skills and techniques associated with creating some form of representational art, especially in the styles commonly referred to as 'classical realism'. Neo-traditional ateliers of this kind can be found around the world, particularly in North America and Western Europe. They often include sessions for drawing and painting the live model.

Core curriculum:

     The Ryder Studio Atelier is a 30-hour per week life-drawing and portrait-painting program that runs from the beginning of September through the beginning of May each year. The realistic approach to drawing and painting taught in the Atelier is based on the instruction of Ted Seth Jacobs, with whom Anthony and Celeste Ryder studied from 1983 to 1989. At the beginning of each academic year the methods and techniques of drawing and painting are presented in a series of in-depth demonstrations. Students draw and paint from the live model and receive individual support and advice from Anthony and Celeste, as well as from John Reger, former student and now teacher at the Ryder Studio.

    Mornings are generally devoted to portrait painting, with the average portrait pose lasting 6 weeks. Figure drawing is in the afternoons, and the average pose is 2 weeks long. Students may enroll full-time, for the entire academic year, or part-time on a weekly basis, either full or half day.
