French word "ATELIER" (pronounced ah-TELL-eee-ay) meaning
"studio," was chosen because the program is modeled after
the New York "STUDIO" School where learning is accomplished
through the interaction of professional artists with students. The purpose
of the studio is to grow talent and skill in each community, and also
to teach the technical and business side of art. Students assist in
all aspects of the design, implementation and promotion of the exhibitions.
