Students will be invited to apply in Fall of 2018 for the Apprenticeship year beginning in Spring II Session in May 2019.

Apprenticeship Program





The purpose of our apprenticeship program is to raise up students that produce high quality artwork that may in future years be able to contribute as teachers or professional artists on Atelier commissions. In this program, selected students will be given the opportunity to put the Atelier study into full time practice.  Students will have the opportunity to take classes Monday - Friday morning at the Atelier, and also (when appropriate) the figure class on Tuesday evenings.  Students will be expected to also attend (and pay for) drawing events such as the Art of Jazz and (when ready) Open Figure, as well as Art History Lectures and Openings. 


A one year commitment from each student is required.


There is very limited availability for this program. Please carefully read all requirements before applying. To apply, please send a letter of purpose to Margaret at If we are interested, we will contact you to set up a portfolio review and interview for the position.


If accepted, the apprectice's program of study for the next semester will be designed by Kevin McEvoy and will require a minimum of 4 classes per week.  Students will have the opportunity to re-apply after one year, up to a maximum of 3 years.
