Rees Atelier is pleased to roll out its full time program, the Apprenticeship.  While the curriculum and presentation of information falls closely in line with the Academy Program, the full time pathway proceeds at a traditional speed with more study time in the studio.  


Apprentices meet Monday through Friday from 12pm - 6pm


Students will work from a live model every day from 12pm - 3pm, and poses will range from 1 session (3 hours) to 10 sessions (30 hours), depending on the apprentice's block of study. For this 3 hour block each day, apprentices will be working alongside Tim Rees as he creates his drawings and paintings from the model.


Students will work on their individual block of study from 3pm-6pm

           Block 1 Bargue Plate Drawing

           Block 2  Cast Drawing

           Block 3 Master Copy Still Life Drawing

           Block 4 Still Life Drawing Drawing

           Block 5  Master Copy Figure Block In Drawing

           Block 6  Master Copy Figure Drawing

           Block 7 Master Copy Portrait Drawing


           Block 8 Cast Painting

           Block 9 Master Copy Still Life Painting

           Block 10 Still Life Painting

           Block 11 Master copy Anatomy Studies Painting

           Block 12 Master copy Portrait Painting

           Block 13 Master copy Figure Painting

           Block 14 Master copy Multi-Figurative Painting (optional)


           Apprentices must demonstrate sufficient ability in each block before advancing, and there is no set time frame on mastery of each subject.  Traditional study in this approach can take 2-4 years to complete each block.


While apprentices are allotted one flat file space and 1 locker, it is STRONGLY encouraged they apply for the Artist Residence to gain more working space, storage, and 24 hour access to the facility and model studio.
