Teaching Artists

The Atelier CMS is an organization run by professional artists. This gives students access to artists distinguished in their fields. The diverse visual artists who teach with the Atelier reflect varied attitudes. Their commonality is a commitment to quality, integrity, and intensity of research. The Atelier is not about easy success, but holds participants to the highest professional standards as they explore the processes of visual art.

There is a huge need in our economy for creativity: creativity is the fuel for the information age. We no longer live essentially in an industrial economy, and the work force we need now has a new pattern. The Atelier offers an opportunity for youth to meet that challenge.

The Atelier's admissions policy does not discriminate because of race, color or creed.
