Magrath Atelier at Gage Academy of Art

The Magrath Sculpture Atelier is a multi-year, part-time Atelier designed to confer the core disciplines needed to become a practicing figurative sculptor.

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. 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.

Intended to dovetail with the ongoing Foundation program, aspiring part-time Atelier students are encouraged to add Foundation Figure Sculpture I at a discounted rate for a fully immersive experience. Other concurrent or discounted programs include Écorché programs, guest lectures and professional development events.
