About Us

Learn, study, practise, improve. Workshops, courses, drop in figure drawing and special events. All skill levels welcome.

An Atelier is a professional artist's private workshop and studio space used for the education of students and artists of all skill levels. The focus is in developing skills and improving creative pursuits under the gentle guidance of passionate professionals and enthusiastic peers.

Ateleir Artista is a place to fortify your observation skills and to develop your creative muscles; to strengthen both your eyes and your hands. As you begin learning new methods and techniques you will also exercise your mind. This atelier is a place to train like an athlete uses a gym. To be a proficient artist you need to continue to "work out" in order to develop discipline, concentration and patience alongside technique and skill.

The atelier has ample space and spectacular light coming in through large, north facing windows. We are equipped with quality custom studio furnishings, solid oak drawing horses, easels and tabourets. Lesson notes are done on the turn of the century slate chalkboards. There is no other place to study art that has the ambiance of Atelier Artista.
