The Atelier Studio Program of Fine Art focuses primarily on teaching fine draftsmanship and painting skills leading to the creation of well constructed artwork. The Atelier has passed on from teacher to student, a method of instruction which melds formal academic training with influence of the French Impressionists. American art students in the late nineteenth century European art academies brought this combined education home to pass on to their own students.

A portion of The Atelier’s educational lineage is as follows:

Jaques-Louis David (1748-1825)

Paul Delaroche (1797-1856)

Jean-Léon Gérôme (1824-1904)

William McGregor Paxton (1869-1941)

R. H. Ives Gammell (1893-1981)

Richard F. Lack (1928-2009)

Dale Redpath and Cyd Wicker, Co-Directors and instructors at The Atelier, each studied with Richard Lack at Atelier Lack for five years. After completing their training, they taught with Mr. Lack for a combined seventeen years before taking over the program following his retirement from teaching in 1992. Cyd and Dale pursue their own successful careers in painting, while as skilled instructors they continue to pass on this knowledge of creating finely crafted works of art.
