Classical Atelier Drawing & Painting Programs

The Atelier is a collaborative working art studio located in Northern California’s Sonoma County whose artists share a passion for traditional and contemporary realist painting and drawing.

The RRA hosts regular classes and intensive workshops taught by local artists, Jay Blums, Naomi Marino and Linda Schroeter, as well as guest artists at various times through the year.

We offer classes in oil painting for beginners, still-life painting, figure drawing, sight size cast drawing and open studio model sessions. From single-sessions focusing on an alla-prima approach, to longer more intensive courses of study that provide a student with hands-on experience with the many stages of painting and drawing, and are open to students of all abilities and experience.
