Georgetown Atelier

The Georgetown Atelier offers comprehensive training in classical drawing and painting, and is a full-time apprenticeship-based program.

The Georgetown Atelier is located in Seattle's historic Georgetown District, renowned for its thriving artistic community. It is housed in a charming brick and wood building that was once the bottling plant of the old Rainier Brewery.

The Georgetown Atelier offers comprehensive training in classical drawing and painting, and is a full-time apprenticeship-based program. The program is designed to take three years to complete and is project based and cumulative. While studying here, students form a bedrock of abilities that lasts a lifetime. Through hard work and step-by-step guidance, students become equipped with a skill set they can use to carve out a flourishing artistic career.

Alumna Miya Sukune has a solo show titled "Gaman" at Zeitgeist Coffee in Pioneer Square. It is a collection of alla prima paintings she made at the Wingluke Museum over the past year. It is up until the end of the month--be sure to stop in and see it!

We currently have student work on display at Davenport Cellars, in Woodinville, WA. It will be up until the end of August--be sure to stop by for a glass of wine and to see the work!

Join us tomorrow evening as Holly White-Gehrt, alumna of Georgetown Atelier and Classical Part-Time Atelier instructor, presents a lecture on how Modernism has influenced Classical Realism.

"How Modernism Informs the Contemporary Classical Realist" will step us through Modern Art movements that dissect masterly traditional painting. If what makes a painting "good" is more than creating an illusion, if creating a peephole into another world is not the only goal, then what makes a painting work? Modern Art breaks it down into pieces that we can use. We are not (just) cows.
