The Magrath Sculpture Atelier 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.
Michael Magrath received his MFA in Sculpture and Public Art from the University of Washington. He has studied in Rome and at the Florence Academy of Art. He has taught at the Art Academy of London, Gage Academy of Art and the University of Washington.
Build cumulatively upon the core skills of drawing and modeling from life, while adding critical understanding of anatomy, composition in the round and relief as well as technical skills such as mold making, casting, basic fabrication and subtractive techniques in wood, stone, metal and composite materials.
The full series is designed to be undertaken over three years, but may be taken part-time over several years, and culminates in a year of independent study and the production of a final, significant project.
The Magrath Atelier follows the 10-week class schedule. Students receive a 10% discount on other sculpting programs, and have access to Studio 100, a shared workspace, when the room is not in use.
