Main Street     Atelier

     Main Street Atelier houses the Private Painting Studios of Emily Denise and Camie Isabella Salaz as well as our Apprenticeship Program.  Our 3 - 5 year Apprenticeship Program for Drawing and Painting is modeled after the Classical Atelier.  The first year is a rigorous study in Cast Drawing and Painting.  Second year students complete Cast Painting and begin Drawing the Figure from a live model.  Year 3-5, students select and pursue their areas of greatest interest from: Figure Painting, Portrait Painting, Landscape Painting, Still life Painting, Multi Figure Narrative, Figure in Landscape and Figure/Portrait in Interior.         
The Goals of our Apprenticeship Program are technical mastery and the completion of a small body of work.  Main Street Atelier, caps enrollment at 5 students, providing ongoing one on one instruction.  Instructors Camie Salaz and Emily Denise draw and paint from the model and create their own work alongside the students.  Students are encouraged to exhibit  twice yearly in our Fall and Spring Exhibitions at the Main Street Gallery.  Please contact us with questions about our Apprenticeship Program or to tour the Atelier or Gallery.
