Atelier of Laura Lee Moreland


A workshop or studio, especially one used by an artist, where a principal master and a number of students, and apprentices work together producing pieces of fine art or visual art released under the master’s name or supervision.

….. This Atelier will teach a complete system of painting. The objective of this instructor is to develop the student’s skill through traditional training and practice, using the same methods that were used to teach many of the great masters of the past.

This is a tried and true method of teaching that was widely used until the modern period and is no longer taught at the University or College level. However, many of the Modernpainters were trained in this method and were able to use this technique to develop their own style.

This is NOT a course in the materials used by the old masters. Students will not be making their own paint, black oil, varnish, or gesso. The master has built upon the techniques that were used by the masters, this is a course about the history and techniques.  You will leave this course with a clear understanding of how to paint and with the tools to continue, although many students may continue on for multiple courses, just as I did with my own master.

The place of origin or earliest known history of a record of art, used as a guide to authenticity or quality.
