"Every year students are scared to start portraits in my classroom, and at first I was too. Especially since students don't want to be embarrassed and want to do their best. With the help of School of Atelier Arts and their resources, I have been able to help my students create successful portraits, which has also boosted their confidence! I am extremely thankful for these resources because they offer skill-based lessons that give my students a strong foundation for their artworks."
- ELEMENTARY ART TEACHER KELSEA FISCHER -
I'M MANDY & I KNOW EXACTLY HOW IT FEELS TO BE UNSURE HOW TO APPROACH TEACHING PORTRAITS.
When my students first started asking me to teach them how to draw people, I was intimidated. I didn't really learn those skills in my own college classes. How was I going to teach them something I didn't know?
Worse, I saw art teachers all around me posting amazing student portrait drawings. How were they getting their students to make such impressive artwork?
While searching for resources to teach portrait drawing better, I came across something called "Atelier Training", which is a method for learning how to draw and paint realistically.
After studying full time in ateliers for 5+ years, I made it my mission to share what I learned with my fellow art teachers through the Ateliyay! Curriculum. I want to help art teachers like you teach their students amazing drawing skills using methods that have been handed down from artist to artist for centuries.
