The atelier technique is an age-old tradition, artists like Sargent spent some of their most formative years in an atelier, learning alongside masters
and developing their expertise through hard work and constant practice. In an atelier the tutor will work alongside the students so that one learns
from demonstrations and critiques. Groups are kept small to allow for more teacher-student time. At the Studios the class size does not exceed 12.
The tutors also play an active role, regularly critiquing your work and giving demonstrations, which, we believe are a key tool for learning. LARA
the school has since championed the value of rigorous skills based training and brought the craft back into mainstream arts education.
