Southern Atelier Now Accepting Applications for the Miano Apprenticeship Program

Published June 30, 2021

The Southern Atelier is proud to present their apprenticeship program, under the direction of ARC Associate Living Master Charles Miano, designed as a 4-level program with a 2-fold course of study. In addition to traditional long term projects such as casts, master copies, portraits and figure works, our apprenticeship curriculum highlights rigorous short, intermediate and long practice from the live model. The combination of projects and practice is unique among contemporary ateliers. This balanced approach develops hand eye coordination quickly and improves an artist's ability to see and capture life and movement dramatically while at the same time learning to finish works of art to the highest standards of excellence.

Spaces are limited to provide one-on-one instruction and detailed attention, so students can thrive in their study no matter their entry level. Using Miano’s step-by-step proven approach to breaking down complex classical ideas, students elevate the quality of their drawing and painting work within weeks of training. Throughout the apprenticeship program, students may also attend workshops at Southern Atelier given by visiting master artists from around the world.

The Miano Apprenticeship is broken into trimester terms, for $3800 per term. Apprentices may benefit from having their own individual work area, teaching opportunities, public gallery representation, and a key to the Atelier studio, located in luminous Sarasota, Florida.

“Mr. Charles Miano’s teachings are beautifully balanced... During his lessons East meets West…. the effort and hard work that he demands of his students is also presented with the need to let things develop naturally. It is a refreshing and daring methodology…. honest and unselfish instruction to students with serious intentions in art.” - Joe Oliva Ganoza, Alumni
