Kyle Abernethy, Kang-O’Higgins Atelier

Kimi Hansen, Faigin Atelier

Ateliers at Gage provide aspiring artists the opportunity to work and study in a stimulating, communal environment under the guidance of a master teaching artist.

Full-time Atelier students receive their own dedicated workspace, daily open studio sessions, a discount on sculpting studios and other classes and free admission to most evening lectures.

Atelier students participate in several exhibitions and public art events both on and off campus.

The main entrance requirement is a motivation to learn and a willingness to undertake a long-term commitment of one to four years toward your artistic development.

While an advanced portfolio is not crucial, instructors are looking for aspiring artists with the self-discipline and tenacity to sustain to thrive at Gage.
