Beaux-Arts Atelier - Call for Applications
Our friends downstairs in the Beaux-Arts Atelier, the architectural and classical sister school to GCA, are opening a call for applications for the oncoming year. If you have an interest in classical architecture, the program comes highly recommended. The work they produce is a great source of inspiration for those of us in the GCA.
The Beaux-Arts Atelier is pleased to announce a call for applications for the 2013-2014 year. The academic year runs from September to June, and is divided into five six-week terms and a one-week travel term in Rome. Applications are due March 1, 2013.
The BAA is an intensive program in the study of classical architecture, art, and design following the method of the École des Beaux-Arts. Students receive in-depth instruction in an atelier setting while 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 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 during each term.
