our atelier

Washington Studio School offers 19 shared studio spaces (the “Atelier”) for current and former faculty, and professional artists who have studied at WSS.  For the members, the Atelier provides a wonderful opportunity to work independently and to interact with other artists, sharing models and still-lifes, critiques if wanted, and conversations about art. For WSS, the Atelier provides a vital example of the art-making process. Many of the members are graduates of the Master Certificate Program who have chosen to continue creating their art at WSS.   


A connection with the Washington Studio School in some way is preferred.  In addition, prospective Atelier members must:

(1) have the recommendation of two current Atelier members who have met and discussed the Atelier with the applicant, and

(2) have the recommendation of a WSS faculty member who has reviewed the applicant’s work.




To learn more about the Atelier, please contact the Washington Studio School at 202-234-3030 or admin@washingtonstudioschool.org.




Our current members include student artists, certificate students, faculty members, and professional artists who have studied at WSS.  Many show their works in local galleries and through their professional websites.  galleries and through their professional websites.  To view the works of our exceptional Atelier artists, please click on the artists’ links below.
