The Beaux-Arts Atelier of the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art (ICAA) is an intensive program in the study of design, architecture, and art following the method of the École des Beaux-Arts. Students receive in-depth instruction in an atelier setting while also pursuing coursework in observational drawing, architectural drafting, systematic design methodology, the classical orders, geometry and proportion, traditional methods of architectural wash rendering and drawing, the history and theory of classical architecture, and modeling and sculpting. Students also conduct detailed studies of New York City’s architectural masterpieces through on-site observation and field drawing. In addition, field trips are conducted to leading architecture, decorating, and craftsman studios throughout the program.
