The globally recognized Gage Academy of Art Atelier program is designed for artists who intend to pursue profound mastery in painting, drawing, or sculpture disciplines under the guidance of an internationally-renowned teaching artist.

Once in the Atelier program, students will study and practice in an immersive, stimulating, and communal environment that fosters serious work ethic; the desire to hone and master their craft; and the means to embrace fine arts as a career.

Gage Academy of Art offers atelier programs dedicated to both the classical and modern tradition – ranging from part-time to full time.

Requirements for admission are a motivation to learn and a willingness to undertake a long-term commitment of one to four years toward artistic development. Select ateliers do require portfolio submission. However, an advanced portfolio is not crucial. Instead, instructors are looking for artists with the self-discipline and devotion to thrive at Gage.
