Sponsored by Atelier Programs at Gage Academy of Art: the Magrath Sculpture Atelier and the Aristides Atelier

The Magrath Sculpture Atelier at Gage Acad­emy of Art is a multi-year, part-time Atelier designed to confer the core disciplines needed to become a practicing figurative sculptor at a high level of excellence. Led by celebrated sculptor, Michael Magrath, students learn to become adept in both traditional approaches as well as contemporary concerns in a variety of media.

Designed to be undertaken over three years, but may be taken part-time over several years, the long term goal of the Magrath Sculpture Atelier at Gage is to confer upon the student who completes the program a well-recognized certificate of mastery in fine art figure sculpture, and the skills and confidence needed to make sculpture at the highest level.

Atelier Programs at Gage Academy of Art: The Aristides Atelier, run by world renowned artist and author Juliette Aristides and the Magrath Sculpture Atelier feature an opportunity to work and study in a stimulating, communal environment under the guidance of a master teaching artist. An intensive studio program for the serious artist-in-training, Ateliers offer a contemporary variation on the traditional teaching model of the 19th-century European academies, where dedicated art students apprenticed with a master artist. In the last two years Gage has greatly expanded its Atelier program from Classical Painting & Drawing, Contemporary Painting & Drawing and Still Life Painting to now include Figurative Sculpture, Contemporary Collage, Painting, & Drawing, and our new Core Drawing Intensive, each as vibrant and individual as the primary teaching artist. Gage Ateliers run mid-September through mid-June, and are designed as multi-year or tailored to meet the needs of the individual student.
