Kang-O'Higgins Atelier at Gage Academy of Art

The Kang-O'Higgins Atelier emphasizes drafting and painting skills to empower students with the language and technical skills they need to achieve full visual expression.

The Kang-O'Higgins Atelier at Gage Academy of Art atelier is a figure-drawing and -painting boot camp that emphasizes hard work, hands-on practice and a sense of urgency and concentration when creating. The atelier focuses heavily on life drawing and life painting. To that end, a model is available three weeks out of every month during the mornings. In the afternoons, you work on site in the studio, continuing assigned and personal projects.

Kang-O’Higgins gives slide presentations, lectures and technical demonstrations help you add to your arsenal of skills as you learn to place your work into a wider historical and contemporary context. Topics covered include line and tone, light and shadow, color theory and mixing, and proportion and anatomy, as well as the different approaches for drawing and painting from life. There are two formal life-drawing teaching days and an instructed afternoon studio session each week. The atelier also includes group outings and field trips and hosts guest speakers during the year.
