In an effort to improve the number of studio hours, equipment, tuition cost, and overall quality of the education, The Academy at Scottsdale Artists' School will be moving to Rees Atelier. Although the Scottsdale Artists' School has provided wonderful opportunities to begin this traditional program, the need has come to expand and focus on the original goals of the program: providing high quality realist training to dedicated individuals at an affordable cost, and to help train the next generation of artists.
Our new facility will be located in a flex warehouse in Mesa, near the Scottsdale/Tempe border, an estimated 15-20 minutes from the Scottsdale Artists' School. The facility will offer better natural light, more space, and more storage for students.
We will also be hosting open studios with live models for students, with a broader diversity of pose lengths (from quick sketch to 10 week poses). Less crowded open studios with more direct monitoring and classical poses will yield stronger results in student work.
The warehouse will also have a gallery space in front, and the general public will be invited to see both instructor and student work. July 8th we will have an opening reception. All are encouraged to see the show of recent Academy work as well as the new space.
The new term, which will run July 10- Sept 15, will be held at this new facility. Registration for the first term of drawing is now open!
